My Students

Every year my 2nd grade students overwhelm me with the amount of enthusiasm and love they show for learning. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging assignments and challenges! I have approximately 24 wonderful students.

I am asking for help to create a learning environment for my students to have comfortable seating options to suit their learning needs.

All students are different and have different needs when focusing and processing learning! I want to see my students excited to spread out in the classroom and get comfy while collaborating and completing tasks. We have a diverse community of learners and we encourage collaboration and teamwork.

My Project

During independent and small group instruction, students are often allowed to pick an area where they can work independently and feel comfortable as they complete their work. This also helps them not feel so confined to their desk area. Many students enjoy the places around the room that they can find and relax as they learn, read, or work in groups.

By having other options to work and learn, my students will feel more at home and allow their learning to flow.

These seats are light weight, low to the ground, and can easily move around the classroom. The ultimate goal is to have the students take ownership of their learning and give them the freedom of movement they all desperately need.
