My Students

My ninth grade students this 2018-2019 school year have done very well flexible seating, and I want to offer different seating options as some original choices didn't last due to material quality, i.e. bean bags. In a system with a majority Tier 1 students, my kids have their own personal struggles that they have to deal with before they even enter my room, such as where their next meal is coming from. My goal is to make my room a safe, comfortable place to come to and feel welcome. I know that a new futon that my class picked would make them feel a greater sense of ownership of the classroom.

My Project

I've had several of my students asking for a futon to add to our class room flexible seating. Flexible seating has given my classroom a sense of community that it hasn't had before this year. Students that typically don't enjoy English have something to look forward to, and those that already like it are even more engaged. Offering new seating choices to existing ones allows for a fun mix up at the end of the year when students begin to get antsy for summer. I've had bean bags that did not pan out, and my students have specifically asked for a futon, so I'd like to give them a DHP Nola Tufted Futon that they got to pick, as my flexible seating choices were picked by my previous classes.
