My Students

My students are enthusiastic learners. They find excitement in learning and exploring new concepts.

A peek into my classroom:

Each day, my Pre-K students are greeted with a smile and a warm hug. We call one another friends and consider ourselves a school family. Before officially starting our day, students greet our “morning greeter,” unpack and dance with me on the class rug until all students have finished unpacking. We start our day with a warm welcome and dancing feet. We then begin morning calendar, read a story, explore literacy stations and continue on with our daily schedule. Our classroom is full of hands-on activities, is vibrant and full of love. For most of my students, my classroom is their first experience in a school setting, so it is important that I create a loving and welcoming educational environment for them. Although resources from my school are limited, I intend on using any other resource available to ensure their educational success.

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. Currently my students have the options of working at their tables or sitting/laying on the floor. 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 and are more engaged than when they are just sitting at their table.

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 are adjustable and will allow students to sit at their tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for my wiggly little learners. The comfy floor seats will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. Lastly, the ball seats allow students to move and balance—reducing restlessness and improving focus while they learn.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow into the best students they can be!
