My Students

Every year, I have between 85-90 awesome eighth graders in my science classes. My students are smart, funny, sometimes challenging, wonderful kids! Being an inclusion classroom, my students have varying academic, physical, social, and emotional needs that need to be met in order for them to be successful. Many arrive to class eager and ready to learn, but some need a little extra TLC, motivation, or support.

Having a welcoming classroom environment is an important first step to reaching all students!

My Project

Although we will continue to use our lab tables and chairs, offering additional seating choices in my classroom will ultimately help my students be more focused and engaged in class.

Flexible seating provides choice to students and helps them take ownership of their learning, thereby increasing motivation.

It also provides movement opportunities for students who have difficulty sitting in traditional chairs all day. Whether it be during instruction, collaborative work, or independent time students will have the choice to sit in chairs, on stools, on ball chairs, on tall stools or stand at Stand2learn tables.

This choice of seating benefits not only my students with ADHD/ADD or students with IEP’s, but it benefits every student in my classroom. My students are most looking forward to the Stand2learn tables which is why I requested two even though they’re a bit pricey. They are so excited about this project!
