My Students

My students are special because they still enjoy coming to school. I want them to learn and have fun. What's more fun than learning in a way that is comfortable and more like a home setting? I want my students to have options for how to learn that best suits their needs. Traditional desks and chairs don't work for everyone. This make learning hard for some, why not give them the option of how they want to sit to learn?

My Project

Children are past the days of traditional desk and chair learning. When children get to choose the way they learn, they take ownership in it. Making learning more comfortable and more enjoyable for the students. It also makes it more of a home-like feel for students where they want to come everyday. I have had classes with traditional seating and I have classes with flexible seating and it seems like the kids want to learn more when they have an option of how they want to learn. Please help make our classroom a place kids enjoy coming and don't want to leave at the end of the day.
