My Students

I teach 20 curious, excited, full of energy first graders in Cary, NC. My students love to learn and come to school with smiles each day. We are a title 1 school and our school population is very diverse, both economically and academically.

I work hard each day to make my classroom feel just like home.

I want to enhance my classroom environment by implementing flexible seating to accommodate the diverse learning styles of the children in my classroom. They love moving around and working in different parts of the class. Currently they use clipboards to work around the room, just imagine how thrilled they would be to have lap desks and more flexible seating!

My Project

My students come to school each day full of energy and the love of learning! Just like adults enjoy portable desks and more flexible sitting options, students do too! My students need flexible/comfortable seating options to enhance their engagement and learning. Studies show that students learn better when they are more comfortable. That is why these portable lap desks and stools will help students stay engaged and allow them to learn anywhere in the classroom.

The seating options that will be provided to my students with this project are lap desks and wobble stools.

These seats will give my students the opportunity to sit comfortably and move around while they are learning. They can even take these lap desks outside and work in the hallways or outdoors on a beautiful day.

This project will significantly help my students stay engaged in our learning throughout the day. My students will be so comfortable while learning. I truly can't wait for you to see what flexible seating will do for these little kiddos!
