My Students

My classroom is made up of 29 excited third grade students who come in each day ready to learn! They are creative and thoughtful kids. They embrace change within our classroom and love to take on new projects.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and have various needs, but they work so well together to help each other learn!

While my students work hard in class, the environment in which they work best varies. We have 29 desks for our class. We have changed how our classroom is set up, but we are limited in our options for alternative and flexible seating.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to make the choices that work best for them so that they are able to be focused on learning. During independent work times, students may choose a spot in the classroom that works for them. We are limited in our flexible seating options in class. Currently, students can move their chair to another spot, lay on the front or back carpet, sit under a table with a clipboard, or use the one body pillow we have.

My students are more on-task when they are provided with choice.

When we move to independent work time, my students will often ask if they can pick a new spot in the room to work. The items that I selected will help my students by providing additional seating options for independent work time. With the floor seats, students will have a new option for flexible seating. With limited space in our classroom, it will be helpful that these floor seats are easy to move. The bouncy band that I selected will help students that want to sit at their desk but need a way to “get the wiggles out” so that they can stay focused.
