Learning in Comfort

My Students

My students come from a lower socioeconomic background, which means we are classified as a Title 1 school.

My students have a wide range of academic abilities and learning styles.

I strive to plan activities that are hands-on, engaging, and meaningful.

My goal as a teacher is to create a safe, positive, student-centered learning environment for all that enter my classroom. Through the years of teaching, I have noticed that my students enjoyed working around the room and choosing a place that helped them focus on the task at hand.

My Project

These materials will enhance my students' choices of flexible seating which allows them to complete their work in a manner that is conducive to their learning styles.

Flexible seating is a popular topic right now in education.

Research shows that allowing students to sit in comfortable, alternative seating options greatly enhances their focus. I have slowly incorporated some of the flexible seating options in my classroom.

With a project that is fulfilled, my options will be greatly enhanced. My students will be able to use the lap writing table to to become more comfortable in their learning environment. Students who need constant movement will be able to use the Fidgety Feet bands to quietly release energy while working and not disturb other students. I know that with flexible seating, my students will find a responsible working space and get the most out of our work time classroom activities.
