My Students

We have started a new school year. For all of my students this is their first time attending school. All of them come to school energetic and ready to learn every day!We do a lot of hands-on activities which they enjoy a lot. It is a bit hard for them to stay engage while sitting in a hard, uncomfortable chair. They often get fidgety and restless. I would like the opportunity to offer them flexible seating options that will make them more comfortable while they are learning. a comfortable learning environment will lead to more students engagement, which means student success.

I believe they will love the options and opportunity to have flexible seating where they can feel more comfortable and be able to focus on learning.

My Project

For my students this is their first year in school; they are getting use to routines as well as finding a conformable way to learn. This is why I want to provide them with flexible sitting. Which will help them feel more comfortable and will keep them engage and focus while learning. Just like us adults, we get tire of sitting in a hard chair, my students do as well. They need more comfortable seating options to enhance their engagement and learning. Studies show that students learn better when they are physically active and comfortable. Some of the seating options that will be provided with this project are air stability cushion, balance ball chair, fidget chair/foot band, donut ball and polly makers.

All of these options will give my students the opportunity to sit comfortable and move around while they are learning.

They will be able to move these tools around the classroom. We can use these while seating at the table and also when we are seating on the carpet for circle time.

This project would help my students significantly, and it will keep them engage and focus while learning. I cannot wait to see all of their happy faces when they see their flexible seating!
