My Students

My second grade students live in a culturally diverse, suburban community on the Oregon Coast. My school serves 510 students from kindergarten through fifth grade. We are a Title I school, and one-third of our students are English Language Learners.

My students are eager learners, inquisitive, love to be challenged and enjoy learning new things.

They learn best when presented with a variety of strategies that help them develop their thinking and planning skills and scaffold prior knowledge. They are excited about learning, working with their classmates, and come to school every day with a smile.

My Project

I have some kiddos that need to wiggle, bounce, rock, or move to keep alert and focused. I have a low round table that is in need of four stadium seats to offer kids an alternative to sitting at a table group. Flexible seating, coupled with brain breaks, will improve academic achievement and help them feel ready to learn.

Children need to move, some more than others.

Flexible seating is perfect for students who cannot hold themselves still in chairs all day. I want to provide my class the opportunity to choose where they work and also to decide to work alone, with a partner, or in a small group. Flexible seating is such a positive way for students to make a smart seating choice and to take ownership for learning. I am eager to create an area in our classroom that offers comfortable stadium seats for that time students need to move and wobble while they work.
