Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are among the smartest, brightest, loving and most inquisitive students out there! I have the privilege of teaching kindergarten! Each child enters my room with a different story and background, and my job is to bring them in as my own and create a loving and safe environment for them to learn and grow. My classroom is full of 25 enthusiastic, engaged kindergartners. They come to school eager to learn new things every day. We are constantly pushing forward to meet curriculum guidelines and benchmarks.
We are working in a classroom that looks the same as it did 70 years ago. Students are sitting in desks and chairs all day, and many are struggling to stay focused. Many adults do not work all day sitting down at a desk, and my students will not work that way when they leave school and enter the workforce. I want to provide them with a variety of seating choices so they have an option to choose what works best for them as an individual student. My students need a variety of seating options. My students will love to use these tables as standing tables. They will also have the option to use a stool if they choose to do so. I can't wait to see their growth as students and individuals!
My students will love being able to choose seating options as they work independently in our classroom.
Through research, I have seen fantastic results from classrooms with open seating options for their students. I know my students would benefit as well, and I can't wait to see their excitement, as well as engagement, increase with our new seating options.
