We are a newly reopened school in Kansas City Public Schools with an inquisitive group of fourth grade students. We are a neighborhood school serving a diverse population of learners. My students are eager to create and be involved in projects. We love learning reading, writing, science, and math. We come to school ready to learn every day.
The students in my classroom are an energetic, fun-loving group of learners!
Every day is an adventure as we learn from each other.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. 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.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of 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 comfy couch and the beanbag chairs will allow for additional comfortable reading areas. 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!
