My Students

My kindergarten students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, with a majority of them living in poverty. Although they face these challenges at home, my students always come to school eager to learn, and strive for excellence everyday.

I teach at a Title I school in Arizona where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My classroom is a place where my students come to learn and grow in a positive, caring and safe environment. I want to give my students everything they need to be successful.

My Project

In kindergarten, my students learn and collaborate with their peers on the carpet and throughout the classroom. During independent and collaborative work times, my students are able to choose a location in the classroom that works best for them to complete their work. I have noticed an increase in engagement and work completion when working around the room, and not being restricted at their desks. Including flexible seating choices in my classroom will allow my students to be focused when working independently, and be more collaborative when working with their peers in our classroom space.

When given a choice between working at a traditional desk and chair or a space around the classroom, my students always choose to complete their work around the classroom.

The flexible seating options I have selected will be utilized throughout the day, but specifically will be used during literacy and math centers, small group instruction and free choice time. The Wobble Chairs will be placed at my teacher table, and will be used when I work with small groups of children during our literacy and math block. It will also be available for my students to use during free choice time that is available if they finish their work early and would like to work on a choice activity around the room. The Wobble Cushions can be used throughout the room on the floor. They will give my students the opportunity to wobble on the floor when sitting and working with a clipboard. I have seen how choice has positively affected my student's work completion, and engagement and I hope that including flexible seating options will help my students to continue to learn and grow even more!
