My Students

Who is miserable sitting in the same chair all day? After sitting through a 2 day workshop, I realize why so many students rock in their chair or stand while they work. My whole body ached halfway through the day which took all of my focus. This has inspired me to transform my classroom into a much more comfortable learning space for my gifted 3rd & 4th graders. My students are advanced learners who tend to be bursting with energy and enthusiasm for learning but are expected to think deeply through creative problem solving challenges. Each year I have a handful of kids that struggle with focus, anxiety or autism, as well. By allowing more comfortable seating options, I hope to improve concentration and learning for my spectactular students.

My Project

I have a goal to transform my classroom into a flexible seating space where kids have many choices of what type of seat would be most comfortable while creating, collaboration and learning. Consider where you sit at home to read, work on the computer or play a game. I am more productive in a comfortable seat and I have a hunch my students will be, too. Some folks prefer to stand while they work, which is why I also have plans to add a high top table in my room. Others love sitting closer to the ground with a clipboard so I have ideas for cushioned rockers as a choice. For those kids who love to tilt or rock (and often fall out of their chair), I have selected stools that wobble which will keep them safe as the wiggle and fidget. I am extremely excited to have an engaging learning space that matches the physical needs of my energetic, active 3rd & 4th graders. I greatly appreciate your consideration in donating to my cause.
