My Students

My students are energetic, creative, curious, and eager to learn! My students are in Kindergarten, so I have to provide many different methods of learning to keep them engaged. I incorporate play, alternative seating, and many other learning strategies to help meet the needs of each of my kids.

They come to school each day eager to learn and it is truly amazing to see their faces light up as they learn how to read & write!

I am incredibly lucky to have such a great group of kids this year!

My Project

Flexible seating allows my students to make a choice on where they learn best. Currently, my students have the choice to sit in camping chairs, on wobble cushions, and pillows/cushions on the floor.

By incorporating flexible seating into my classroom, I have noticed that my Kindergartner's are more engaged and are less disruptive when given the choice on where to work.

The products I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to help keep them engaged in their learning. The hokki stools will allow my students to get their wiggles out in a non-disruptive way and it will give them one more choice when deciding on where they will learn best.

This is the first year I have implemented flexible seating into my classroom and I can confidently say that by giving students choices, they will be more engaged and eager to learn!
