Flexible Seating Options for My Active Students

My students need flexible seating options to increase their stamina and level of engagement.

My Students

I have a class of some pretty awesome third grade students who are ready to empower themselves this year and meet every challenge head-on! I currently have 22 students, twelve boys and ten girls. Our neighborhood is in a very rural part of Nevada and is a mix of working and middle-class folks who are an integral part of our school's community.

This high level of community support and engagement is truly what makes our school a special place.

The staff, students, and parents in the community truly come together to make sure that all students are receiving the best education that they can. Although our district faces many challenges, from overcrowding to lack of funding to teacher shortages, none of this affects the positive and upbeat attitudes that make our school a community!

My Project

These materials will make a WORLD of difference in my classroom. Wobble chairs allow these students to stay seated while keeping active. They also allow students to sit or wiggle or fidget in a more natural and comfortable way than do standard classroom chairs, enabling students to silently release their energies without ever having to leave their seats. This will enable my students to stay seated for longer periods of time and enable them to focus better on the task at hand. The loungers and floor cushions will help the students find more comfortable positions as they do independent reading and work on the carpet increasing the level of motivation and stamina of my students.
