My Students

I have amazing students who need different places to be creative. My students are a fun well rounded group of kids who love everything about school. They love working together on projects and think of our classroom as a safe place and our class as their family.

My students are 10 years old and have such mixed personalities.

They focus on growth mindset and know that they can do anything if they keep working hard. Some of my students have problems focusing in their regular desks and need a different places to keep them focused and on task. Our school is a Title one school and has a group of kids who are of many different socioeconomic classes. They deserve options of seating to have access to as much learning as possible.

My Project

Students love to choose their own seat. I want to help them have more options of places to sit! since they are in my room all day they will be able to learn al subjects from me.

When they are able to choose their on space it gives them a chance to work in a space that works for them.

They can be more focused and work to collaborate with other students. Having flexible seating in my classroom helps me because when students pick their own spot they tend to pick a better sport for themselves to learn. They can be more focused and work harder!
