Flexible Seating

My students need 4 stability balls, 2 bean bag chairs, reading pillows, and storage bins for their supplies.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom is full of smiles, cooperative learning, whole brain teaching, and a whole lot of learning fun!

We are a very small school in southern Florida with the most loving and hardworking students.

Our motto is work hard, be kind! My students are hands-on learners and love cooperative learning! My students make most of the decision as to how our classroom runs. Now they would like to be able to make the decision as to where they learn and work in our classroom.

My Project

My goal is to take away the traditional classroom setup and give the students the opportunity to choose seating that is the most comfortable for them. Research has shown an increase in engagement and learning with flexible seating. I want to give my students the best environment to help them grow and learn. My students need 4 stability balls, 2 bean bag chairs, reading pillows, and storage bins for their supplies.

Students achieve more when they are in charge of their learning.

Think about when you're working. You don't always want to sit at a desk. You focus better and are more productive when you're comfortable. Flexible seating gives the students the power to choose where to do their work which will optimize their learning. Please help me reach my goal!
