Learning and Lounging with Lawver

My students need flexible seating for a comfortable learning environment with choices to increase student engagement!

My Students

Are you comfortable sitting in a hard chair 6+ hours a day? Do you like comfort and the ability to move around? Well so do my first graders! I teach first grade at a school located in a very popular beach resort area. My class is a mix of children from various socioeconomic backgrounds. Some of my students come from upper-class families that live in extravagant beach homes whereas other students live in the local motels and campgrounds. Many of my children come in hungry and tired; however, despite these circumstances my students still arrive eager to learn and try new things each day. My room is also used in the afternoons for an after-school program for our homeless and at-risk students! They also are looking for a comforable and relaxing place to complete homework after a long day of school!

My students' enthusiasm for learning is contagious and inspirational.

I want to provide my students with a classroom atmosphere where they can thrive emotionally, physically, and academically without worry of things that are out of their control.

My Project

This project will allow my students to have voice and choice in where they sit in our classroom. Instead of always sitting in hard chairs, they will have the choice to sit on balance balls, stools, balance discs and more! They can sit at a table, on the floor, or stand if that's how they learn best!

When students have choices about what they learn and how and where they learn it their engagement increases!

Right now I have purchased some flexible seating for my classroom on my own, but this project will allow all of the students to have flexible seating at the same time.
