Surfing Into Our Chairs

My students need these surf chairs to sit comfortably around the classroom and this will help them work to the best of their ability.

My Students

For the 2017-2018 school year, I am teaching 3rd grade. There are currently 18 students in my classroom throughout the day. There is a wide range of academic abilities within my classroom.

Since there is a wide range of academic abilities, we often differentiate our lessons and work in small groups.

Although we have our desks and teacher tables to work on, there are times where we are sitting on the floor.

Working on the floor can be challenging sometimes. We like for our students to feel comfortable so they can work to the best of their ability.

My Project

These surf chairs would be a wonderful addition to our classroom. Since we work in small groups throughout the day, this will give students an opportunity to work comfortably around the room.

Children often have difficultly working neatly when using a clipboard on the carpet and these surf chairs will give students a platform to work on.

Not only can students use this in the classroom, but if we wanted to complete an activity outside, these chairs are lightweight enough to travel with.

Lastly, children are very motivated when they have the opportunity to try new types of flexible seating. This will be a great incentive to have children work to the best of their ability while enjoying a new work space.
