My Students

My students are an amazingly driven group of sixth grade students that love to learn. I currently teach one hundred and fifty, sixth grade students throughout the day. Even though all are at different levels coming into the class, it is my job and goal to get them on equal ground by the time they walk out in May.

If you were to walk into my classroom tomorrow, you would find students actively engaged in all types of activities ranging from direct instruction to demonstrations and creative projects.

What is consistent is the amount of effort and determination put into the work from each child. As students move on, they take the knowledge with them to build a successful future.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
