My students are my heart. They are sweet, kind, compassionate. They are curious, wide-eyed, and attentive. They are excited, happy, and love hugs. They come from all different homes. Some have their own beds, others do not. Some eat breakfast every morning, others do not. Some look forward to summer break, yet others do not.
All of them come to school every day and do their personal best.
And because of that, I need to make sure I give them everything they need. They are so special and deserve the best.
In our classroom environment, students have always had the ability to choose their own workspace. We encourage flexible seating options and allow students to make individual choices to meet their personal needs. I have seen how effective flexible seating options can be and how it allows the body and brain to work together.
I am hoping to expand our flexible seating options with this collaborative seating space.
This project is unique because it will offer a collaborative workspace for students to gather. During independent work time, our students often work together to complete projects and activities. These chairs and table would allow them to have a consistent and accessible area to keep their classroom works.
