My Students

I teach in a low income/ high poverty school where my kiddos face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of my students are on free and reduced lunch and when given the opportunity for a second chance breakfast almost all of them take it. Despite these challenges, I am looking to help my students become the best version of themselves each and every day. I may not be able to control their home life, but I focus on what I can do for my students and their potential not only in the classroom but for their future lives as well.

My Project

Given the opportunity to have flexible seating in the classroom would allow students to take control and responsibility for their learning. During the day and even in small groups instruction, students would choose a seat in the classroom that would benefit their learning as much as possible such as sitting on the floor, sitting on stability balls, or standing desks. Making sure students have voice and choice in their learning is an essential component of having consistent motivation. I have noticed the difference in my students when they are given a choice and voice for their seating arrangement. When students have these opportunities in the classroom there is a noticeable difference in engagement with their work.

The products I have selected will help my students by giving additional seating choices to make their learning experience more successful.

The tables I have enough space for individual students to be able to work independently but also allows for group work and collaboration. Within these tables, I plan to use stability balls, which I already have, buckets or crates, and the mats that you see on the list. The risers will be beneficial to have those standing desks that some students need in order to stay focused or to stretch their legs if needed.
