My Students

My students are eager to learn however sometimes things get a little stressful and overwhelming. This is sometimes caused by external factors which we have no control over. Several of my students are responsible for caring for younger siblings. Sometimes this responsibility weighs heavily on their mind.

My students are eager to learn and advance their education!

Many students in my class and school live in poverty and do not have access to the most critical necessities. I want to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment where they can flourish.

My Project

I want to increase concentration by providing flexible seating options for my students. My students will be give choice for seating. Students will be allowed to use the kick bads when sitting in their chairs and stability discs when sitting on the floor. When students feel they have more control and choice then they are less stressed. This makes them more receptive for learning.

Students who are more comfortable and less stressed learn better.

Kick bands will to help my fidgety students by having a release for their excess energy.

Stability discs will be used as floor seating at the floor table. This will help to provide alternative seating and choice. Allowing students to feel incontrol of their environment allows them to feel safe and ready to learn.
