My Own Place

Help me give my students a small comfy couch to have another choice for seating and be able to work with a friend.

My Students

Kindergartners are inquisitive and engaged learners. They are kinesthetic learners that love to read and explore the world around them. Young learners like to have a variety of learning spaces that offer different equipment and materials allowing them to decide where they are most productive, to be creative, collaborate with others or work independently while meeting the need for them to explore and learn.

Students will have an opportunity to have an area where they can sit with a friend to do their work or just read a book.

This project will help offer high-quality experiences to my students!

My Project

Flexible seating has allowed my students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. They independently choose an area 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.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they can choose where they want to seat.
