My Students

Do you ever imagine yourself completing work in the comfort of your favorite chair instead of your hard and uncomfortable work-given seating? My students do!

I have 23 incredibly loving, creative and inspiring students.

They strive for greatness and do their best every day to be a better version of themselves. They deserve a space to be comfortable in their learning and let their creativity soar!

Providing them with flexible seating options will give them the comfort of home while remaining within the classroom. They will feel the freedom of choice and comfort of 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. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables, 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.

The wobble stools will allow some movement during learning that is effective and discrete.

They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The metal stools will be a great seating option for small groups to gather at the back table to collaborate! The exercise balls will allow students to get their wiggles out . The bungy chairs will allow students to work independently in a comfortable seating option that is unique to our classroom!

Allowing students to choose their seating promotes a positive and engaging learning environment!
