My Students

My current students are an incredible group of 1st graders. Soon they will be moving on to 2nd grade, and so will I! This year, I was able to see the huge benefits of flexible seating in the classroom. I would like to give the students next year more options and opportunities for flexible seating in 2nd grade.

My students work best when they can move!

They are more focused and engaged when they are able to move. My students are thoughtful, creative, inspiring, compassionate, curious and enthusiastic. But most of all, my students have a passion for learning!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. In the classroom, my students choose 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. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

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. The wobble stools will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. 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!
