My Students

My third grade students are highly engaged in their learning. Several of them are English Learners. They come from many places around the world and have individual experiences that add to our classroom. I am constantly impressed by their willingness to try new things and to think outside the box. My class is thrilled for the idea of these additional seating options for different areas of the classroom that best meet their learning needs.

My school is full of great technology and hands-on learning experiences.

Students engage in a variety of activities that challenge them, including experiences on their Chromebooks.

My Project

Research shows that allowing students to sit in flexible seating options enhances student focus. With a fulfilled project, I would be able to offer my students a variety of additional seating options based on what they choose to best fit their needs. Students would be able to use seat cushions and wobble stools to focus in the classroom and to collaborate with others. These options will allow them to become more comfortable, find a responsible working space, and get the most out of classroom activities.

My students currently love being able to choose their own seats but need more options.

This type of seating leads to students having more choice and the ability to self-monitor as to whether or not their choice is effective for them. I prefer to work in a comfortable seating arrangement, such as on the couch or a comfortable chair with wheels, as opposed to a plastic chair. I believe students should have the same options, as well.
