My Students

I teach 5th and 6th grade students. My students are local Hispanic students that come with family that have a lot disadvantages, not only economically but social as well.

My students are always eager to learn and love to be engage in the learning even with their limitation in the language.

I would like to help in their comfort in the classroom to help in their learning. My goal as an educator is to help student be engage in the classroom and to feel at home as well. I love to create an environment where students can feel safe, which is something the lack at their homes.

My Project

I will give students the ability choose where to work to create a better learning environment. Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating.

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

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
