My Students

Hi there! Welcome to my fourth grade classroom! I have a wide range of students this year and am looking to be able to reach each of them and help them focus better during their daily work in the classroom. This means being able to provide flexible seating for students.

By increasing a secondary focus, flexible seating provides students an outlet to move around without distracting other students.

I have created a welcoming, inclusive environment for all students and look to be able to help my students access their learning more easily by eliminating the need to constantly move.

My Project

Students are able to learn their best when they are comfortable. What each student finds comfortable, can range from child to child. Sitting in the same spot throughout the day, may not be the best way for students to learn. Flexible seating provides students with opportunities to engage in learning that speaks to their individual and sometimes unique, occupational needs.

Flexible seating allows students to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength.

In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused.
