My Students

My sixth-grade students come from three rural elementary schools to a middle school of 700 students. Fifty-nine percent of my students are on free/reduced lunch. Seventeen percent of my students have IEPs or 504s.

They work best in an environment that provides choice but allows for collaboration, communication, and creativity.

Many of my students reside with grandparents or single parents. I strive to provide an identification for each of my classes by performing a unique handshake greeting with them. I want students to feel a sense of belonging.

My Project

It is important to give sixth-grade students a choice in their seating in the classroom environment. Many students need movement to be able to perform their tasks in class. In the ELA classroom, they have options for various flexible seating arrangements to help them with their movement.

The swivel back stools will help them move without disturbing others and provide a more comfortable seating option.

Some students just need a different seating choice to focus more during class. The backed chair will give them support and the swivel will allow for movement. These chairs will allow the students to adjust for their individual height. The students will use the dry erase markers as they annotate various fiction and nonfiction passages in dry erase sleeves.
