My Students

Living the small town dream in second grade. The graduating class of 2027 is currently 50 strong. Currently the smallest class we have in our elementary school.

This tribe of kiddos has a lot of talent, drive, and ambition.

They are sure to go places!

With over half of the students being boys you can believe being active is a must! It's easy to see at first glance why this group of kids needs to be kept busy and on the go!

My Project

The goal of flexible seating in a student-centered classroom is to create optimal spaces for students to collaborate, work in whole group or independently.

Students make independent seating options that are favorable to their comfort and learning style.

We would love to incorporate flexible seating options this year and see it continued for many years to come.

Studies have linked higher student achievement to physical activity, improved health, and overall improved behavior. Every year behavior issues get in the way of student learning. Studies have also shown flexible seating options are highly beneficial to students with ADD, ADHD, and students on the autism spectrum. It allows them to find comfort by providing sensory feedback.

By having wobble stools, and throw cushions students are able to meet their age-appropriate needs. It allows them to stimulate their sensory needs and also disperse excess energy.
