My Students

We are a Title 1 middle school. My students are an eclectic group of students who require a smaller learning environment to be successful. They have social/emotional needs that range from ADHD to Bi-Polar. Some of my students will be in our Special Day Class all day, while others will be able to mainstream for a period or two. This is my first year in this program and second year at the school. I want to provide a safe and calm learning environment: one that will allow for movement in a way that gets their needs met in a healthy way. It is also important for me to provide tools that allow for them to access the curriculum and reduce their frustration.

My Project

The office chairs will provide my students the opportunity to sit in a chair that provides back support, but also allows for them to move. We currently have two of these chairs in our classroom and the students have had to learn how to share. Which is a wonderful thing, however it would be nice to allow students the chance to sit in an office chair daily. The chair will allow them the opportunity to move while staying in their seat. The students will be ecstatic if they are provided the opportunity to have this form of flexible seating in our learning community.
