My Students

Our classroom of 22 students is full of energy, eagerness to learn and hard workers. They have a joy and calmness when they enter school since over 60% of our population receives free and reduced lunch. My students this year are a unique group where they are high trauma students (homelessness, foster care, history of abuse, etc).

We want our students not to be victims of their lives but instead, survivors.

We do this by creating a safe, predicable and rigorous classroom that focuses on positive behavior support and goal setting.

My Project

We need a class set of stability balls and stools as flexible seating options to meet my students' sensory needs. The flexible seating items I am requesting will increase motivation and engagement. These items will allow students to meet sensory needs, increase oxygen flow to their brains, and give them choice within the classroom environment. Educational research and best practices support flexible seating arrangements to help support learning within the classroom.

Our classroom environments should be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.

This simply cannot be done when kids are sitting in rows of desks all day. By implementing a flexible seating environment, my hope is the students will become more self-aware of what types of seating and environment help them learn best. I want to empower my students by giving them the opportunity to have choices.
