My Students

Each time you walk into my classroom you will see my students engaged in hands-on, interactive activities. They love to problem solve, and work cooperatively with each other. We have a diverse group of students with many ethnicities and cultures represented. Our positive classroom climate helps us lift each other up, and make each person feel welcomed and included.

I have a lot of students who need constant movement in order to stay focused and do their best thinking.

We've tried using fidgets, and those are temporary fixes - but having the ability to wobble or bounce in these flexible seating options would be a game changer. They need an outlet to let out their energy during activities and lessons to help them stay engaged.

My Project

My students need the ability to work cooperatively throughout the day with flexible seating. The cushions will make it possible for my squirmy students to get their wiggles out in their seats without distracting the rest of the class. The stools give students an added option for seating throughout the day. Book boxes give us a way to bring our materials with us around the classroom.

Flexible seating is the future of 21st century classrooms.

Elementary classrooms nowadays don't have students sitting in rows facing forward, listening to a teacher lecture. My classroom engages in STEM, and other collaborative activities throughout the day. They need the ability to choose which seating option best suits their needs. Giving students voice and choice each day allows them to take ownership of their learning.

My amazing students would love to have added options to make our classroom more engaging. Please help us be more flexible every day!
