Help me give my students flexible seating in our classroom. Currently our options are just desks with chairs, I believe by adding fidget bands, stools, and bungee chairs the kids will stay focused and feel more comfortable.
I am gearing up to start my 2nd year teaching at an extraordinary school! Although I have not yet met my students, I am fully invested in their education and well being. My students are all from an underprivileged area near Detroit, Michigan.
The students will be benefiting from our tuition free school because we are highly skilled and qualified professionals with giant hearts of gold teaching them.
We are great people teaching little great people to be the best they can be.
Flexible seating has been proven to help kiddos stay focused while learning in their classroom. The choices I have made for this project will allow for all the students to be able to make different choices for seating in the classroom so that they can be comfortable, consider choices, and stay focused every single day. Many of my students need extra love and support in the classroom. I have students that can't sit still and decide to stand because they can't control the amount of energy their body produces. Flexible seating is key to help them figure out what works best for them to learn.
