My Students

My students are energetic, curious, and funny. They love to move around while learning and reading. I am trying to build a room that is comfortable and welcoming to all of my students. I am looking to buy tables that can be used to stand at while they work.

Students are required to sit and pay attention for long times during the day.

I want to allow them to stand and work too.

I love that my students are creative and willing to be flexible. They are so smart and I believe these standing desks will help them achieve more.

My Project

Our students are required to sit for long periods of time. Some of them are not meant to sit and learn. I want to give students the option to stand or sit whenever they would like. I am wanting standing desks and tall stools for my students. This will allow them to not be in the way of other students when they want to stand. I feel that when students are allowed to stand the brain gets moving and is beneficial to learning. I want all of my students to succeed and I truly believe this is a good way for some students!!!
