Seat Choices

Help me give my students choices! They can move around the room and sit in seats they enjoy. The pens are a much needed item in our room too!

My Students

Being in a low income and high poverty school district exposes students to challenges in and outside of the classroom. School should be a fun, exciting, and safe place to learn. Students should come into the classroom and be excited to learn and have access to appropriate materials. Flexible classroom seating allows students to pick an area that best fits their learning style! Currently, flexible seating is limited in the classroom!

Giving students a variety of choices allows them to be in charge of their learning.

A variety of seating choices allows me to accommodate for every learner that will be in my classroom. My students are hard-working and engaged learners which makes our small town community proud.

My Project

Children will be able to sit on the floor and be comfy at the same time. Students who need to constantly move need this opportunity. Changing seats and giving students options is extremely important to their well being. It also helps them self advocate and reflect on what truly helps them learn best. My students change seats every week and these chair options will help give them choices.

Currently, we have one of these floor seats and the children love to fight over this spot!

Two more would give students the opportunity to sit comfortably on the group. Exciting choices!

Our students also need basic supplies such as pens to complete their classwork.
