My Students

My students come from a low socioeconomic neighborhood. We currently have a high percentage of free and reduced lunches. Students are eager to be at school and feel it is a safe place to be. These middle school students come to school with different barriers and still are eager to accomplish their goals. I love working with our students and I am excited for when they come back to visit and tell us about the great things they have accomplished.

My Project

Flexible seating for middle school students is a great way to keep them engaged during class. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I currently have a couch and tables in my room where students can choose to sit. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting in a chair at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of what to sit on when they are working.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The exercise balls will allow some movement for the students who need to be allowed to move. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The spider web chairs will allow an additional seating choice for the students. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
