My Students

My students are inquisitive, eager to learn, hilarious and creative. My second graders come to school to learn through engaging in the arts such as drama, music and visual arts.

As second graders, my students are learning how to be independent and take responsibility for their own learning.

Every student learns differently, and having flexible seating options will allow students to select to work in a place most productive for them. They will be able to work, wiggle and learn!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices, in addition to allowing them to get their wiggles out.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
