Flexible Seating for Flexible Learning!

My students need four active learning stools! As we engage in hands-on, inquiry-based learning, they will need to work in teams. Flexible seating, supported in part through these stools, will undoubtedly foster greater collaboration and focus!

My Students

My students are inquisitive and hilarious, bright and brilliant, compassionate and empathetic. They study core subjects in both English and Mandarin Chinese. They love inquiry, projects-based learning. Their dreams and friendships are so important, and their heart for social justice is an inspiration.

As their teacher, I want to continue to nurture my students' growth as bilingual, diplomatic stewards of an ever-connected global community.

In the past, I have taught early childhood, specifically Kindergarten-2nd. As I venture into 4th grade, I am eager to create a classroom environment that is developmentally appropriate for older students, and I need all the help I can get! I cannot begin to describe the enthusiasm I feel, as I embark on this next chapter of my journey as an educator, the students as my guide!

My Project

These wonderful stools will be utilized throughout our learning day! We will use them to cozy up next to our partners or bundle up with our teams, during Readers' Workshop and Writers' Workshop, Math Workshop and Inquiry into Science and Social Studies.

Through flexible seating, my students will better be able to engage in flexible learning.

By being able to move around the room and select their own work spots, they will grow their sense of agency and capacity to make good decisions. These learning stools have the capacity to help my students strengthen not only their stamina and focus for academic learning, but also their heart for working with others and, along with that, their socio-emotional intelligence!
