My Students

When you think back to your elementary school days, do you remember spending the day just sitting at a desk? With the push toward personalized learning, students need a more flexible classroom setting with seating choices to foster their individual needs.

My students are enthusiastic and energetic learners.

Many of them are working below grade level in reading and mathematics, as well as facing the challenges of being English learners in a socioeconomically disadvantaged community. There are also a few students with special needs in my classroom. All of the students at the school receive free lunch. The parents, who want their best for their children, cannot afford to give these students the school supplies that they need.

Unfortunately due to budget cuts, the school can only provide the bare minimum for my students. The children need supplies and so much more to help them improve and be ready for third grade.

My Project

As a teacher, I want only the best for my students. I want them to have an education that meets their individual needs. I want them to feel validated for their hard work. I want their education to be personalized to them and I want them to be engaged in their learning.

With flexible seating options available in the classroom, students can take charge of their learning and make choices that will work for them.

When students make their own choices in seating, they tend to be more engaged and involved in the lesson. Giving students choice thus improves learner agency.

The rug and wobble stools will definitely improve flexible seating options in the classroom. Students will be able to lie on the rug with a clipboard to work in small groups. Students will have to opportunity sit at tables with the wobble stools which will allow for some movement. Some kids just need to "get the wiggles out" in order to help them to attend to the task at hand.

I have seen that when students are given choices, they are more engaged and excited about learning. These tools wills will help me to personalize learning for my students. Please help me create flexible seating for all.
