My Students

My students are bright and curious fourth-grade learners with a love for math and science. Some of us were deeply affected by Hurricane Florence. Living in Pender County, most of my students had to evacuate their homes during the storm and upon returning many of the families were displaced. Also, my own family’s home had significant damage however, thankfully we were not displaced. Most of the schools in our county were severely damaged. The county was out of school for six weeks. Upon returning to my school and classroom much of my hard summer work on preparing the classroom for the year was either broken, thrown away (due to mold) or, unusable.

My Project

The fourth graders I work with were severely affected by hurricane Florence and some of them lost their homes or many personal items in their homes. I want my students to have multiple opportunities to work and learn in places that feel good to them, a place that feels like home. They can find the spot that makes them calm, focused and productive. Having multiple seating options will ensure that every student who comes into this classroom can find a safe learning space that feels just right for them!

Research indicates that flexible seating offers so many advantages over traditional seating.

Movement while learning aids in calming the student's minds so that they have as much access to learning as possible. How many 9 and 10-year-olds do you know that love to sit still... probably not many? It allows students to have a choice of where they feel comfortable working and encourages communication and collaboration between them and their peers. Students need to move and research shows that physical activity and movement can lead to better academic performance.
