My Students

My kinder students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited to see and do all that will come their way that day! Approximately 35% of my school has students of low income that are served free and reduced breakfast and lunch! We also have a large ELL population. My hope is that all students in my classroom will leave knowing that they are loved and that they can do anything they dream! By funding my project you will help give me the tools to inspire them daily!

My Project

Flexible seating allows for students to be a part of their learning by choosing the seat that is best for them and thus maximizes engagement. During independent work times students can choose a location in the classroom that works for them. My students are currently choosing a variety of places to work in our classroom such as at tables, on the floor with clipboards, etc. Making sure that my students are comfortable will help them to be more engaged and productive. 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 soft seats and floor cushions that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional comfy seating options to make more effective learning choices.

I have seen the benefits of flexible seating and know that these additional items will maximize student engagement and thus students will be more successful in our kindergarten classroom.
