My Students

My students love to learn and move! We love to use our imaginations in my classroom and see just what we can create. They love reading and seeing what they can build with our STEM bins. My students love to move and like to explore different areas of the the classroom to work in and they love to work with technology and enjoy working in cooperative learning groups. These kids love coming to school and would love to share how flexible seating has helped them learn.

My Project

I have decided to implement flexible seating in my classroom for the 2018-2019 school year. I have seen many different classrooms online that utilize flexible seating and would like to offer my students different options of seating in my classroom. Flexible seating allows for new teaching strategies, reduces the amount of extended sitting and helps students focus. I want my students to have different options throughout the day on where and how they sit. I currently have a few options for flexible seating and would like to add more to our choice board. I am asking for stability balls, round soft seats, and a supply caddy for students to use while working independently. I know that my students would be so excited to start this year with new super cool ways to work in our classroom!
