My Students

My first grade students come to everyday school eager to learn. They are like little sponges ready to soak up everything during the school day. My students learn through collaborating with groups, movement, and hands on learning. They enjoy reading, writing, stem, music, art, and math. Given the opportunity my students will surprise many with their achievements. My students attend a Title I school with high needs. We are part of a caring community who are very supportive of students, staff, and school.

My Project

Providing my students with more choices of flexible seating will help increase student engagement. Currently, my students have a few options to chose from such as using a clipboard on the floor, standing at a tall table, or sitting on the floor at a low table.

When I provided these flexible seating options I saw student engagement increase, behavior decrease, and positive attitudes increase.

The products that I have selected will provide my students with addition seating options. The wobble stools and the stay in place balls will benefit my students who need to wiggle a little in order to focus, the stools will provide students with the freedom to sit a different table.

Allowing my students to select the best seating option for their learning is powerful. When my students are engaged in my lesson or the activity they are working on so much learning is taking place.
