My Students

Our 5th grade team is made up of 80 amazing students. We are a full inclusion team which means our students have a variety of needs and abilities. 40% of our students have IEPs. These students come from different home lives ranging from apartments, ,trailer parks, country homes, and neighborhood homes.

We focus on a growth mindset to help train our students brains to be positive and preserve through life.

Students are encourage to choose how they want to learn the content as well as how they want to show what they know. Student ownership and interest is important in our classroom.

My Project

Flexible seating has many benefits for learners. Research shows us that students learn best when they have some control over their environment and need to have the ability to move around. Flexible seating supports this concept in the classroom.

Flexible seating provides more of a community in the classroom instead of individual spaces.

This will provide more student learning. Learners are also more productive when they are comfortable. Standard tables and student chairs are very hard and difficult to move around.

Another benefit is letting students have more opportunities to collaborate in groups. Flexible seating also provides sensory input which is beneficial to students with ADHD and ADD.
