My Students

Hello! I currently teach fourth grade in Virginia. My students are a diverse group of active learners! Some come from low-income households, some are English Learners, some are special education students, some are gifted students, and also everyone in-between!

No matter who they are or where they come from, they all deserve a safe, comfortable, and engaging learning environment which will allow each individual to grow and learn to their fullest potential!

My students love to learn! They love to have choices. Above all, though, they are kind and caring. They take care of each other and support each other and they love our classroom community!

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 with clip boards, 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 significant 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.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive to their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

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 will allow students to sit at desks or tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The comfy floor seats and cushions will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
