My Students

I have an incredible group of students this year! We have together made a inspiring and fun classroom. I try my best to make sure my classroom is welcoming, bright, and safe! My students love that I have so many different seating options. Some of them do their best work while laying under their desk with one of my many class pillows. I think letting them get comfy around the room really sparks the creative juices while working on assignments!

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. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. 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. The stools will give my students the options to work in many locations around my classroom, specifically at the windows. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The tall stool will be used for our guest readers to sit in when they visit my classroom instead of them having to sit in a student chair.

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!
