My Students

My students are in 6th grade and are amazing! 6th grade is a fun time at school and students always have energy and also are excited to learn. Math sometimes can be a struggle but I know my students will thrive this year with the flexible seating! The students will be able to responsibly choose their own chairs or stools which will help them stay focused during the class.

6th grade students are full of energy, excitement, and creativity.

The students need a classroom that will help them keep that energy, excitement and creativity and they will in my class.

My Project

I need flexible seating for my 6th grade students. Flexible seating helps students engage more in their learning and lets them make a choice in the classroom. During independent work they are able to move to somewhere that is comfortable which helps them focus more on the content they are working on.

From experience, students are more motivated and more engaged in their learning if they are able to have flexible seating.

The products I have chosen will help my students because they will have more options for seating. The chairs that I chose are comfortable and will provide opportunities for the students to engage in more areas of the room than before. The stools that I chose will help students stay alert and on task during lessons and activities.
