My Students

First grade is a huge transition year for children. Freshly graduated from Kindergarten, my kids are no longer the "newbies" at the school and are becoming fluent readers and inquiring about the world around them.

As my class takes this leap from Kinder to 1st I want to provide them with a nurturing and flexible environment to help foster their learning.

My kids need to feel comfortable enough physically and emotionally to take risks with me so their learning can sky rocket!

My Project

My students are usually six or seven year old boys and girls who struggle to remain seated throughout the school day. I provide them with many brain breaks, opportunities to get up and move, stretch, etc. However, traditional classrooms are supplied with hard plastic chairs that are uncomfortable for children and adults alike.

My vision is to equip my children with a variety of flexible seating options so they can chose a comfortable way to learn that fits their learning style best!

This will increase focus, my relationship with my students, and increase engagement throughout the day. I am so excited to introduce my class to flexible seating!
