My Students

Imagine being in elementary school again. Do you remember the need you had to just get up and move? Kids have lots of energy and that is not something I want to hinder. Instead, I’d like to channel that energy into positive things, changing it into productive energy versus a distraction. I am a first year teacher who is looking to add some flexible seating options to my classroom. I am currently at a school where sixty percent or more of students are on free or reduced price lunch. The value this would add to my classroom would be indescribable. As a teacher, you encounter a variety of different types of students. In order to make my classroom as inclusive as possible, I am trying to build a classroom where students have options on where and how they want to learn. While I will be keeping my traditional tables and chairs, I would like to add some options for students. Some students learn better at desks while others learn better in non-traditional areas. As a teacher, I strive to include as many options as possible to reach as many students as possible.

My Project

I have chosen a few different seating options that I have seen work in the classroom. Having these options, in addition to traditional seating, will make students feel empowered and involved in their own learning by allowing them a choice of how they do so. Included in these options are wobble cushions which are a small circular pad that allows fidgety students an option that is not a typical desk. They are able to move as they please without distracting other students. With seating such as a bean bag and floor chairs, it will allow students the range of movement they desperately need. These will also make students feel more comfortable in a classroom when they are able to have a say in how they will learn. This also makes student collaboration easier.
