My Students

My students are hard-working, 4th grade superstars! They love moving...moving in their seats, moving around the classroom, moving throughout the building...especially dancing.

All of my students live in the same neighborhood as the school.

Due to this, students must either walk to school or get dropped off by a parent.

Our school is the biggest elementary school in the district, due to the proximity of some newer housing. My class size is at 23 currently, but I'm certain that it will increase.

My Project

I always give my students the freedom to seat wherever they want in the classroom while completing their work. My students love seating in the one inflatable chair that I have in my classroom library. Students constantly ask me if they can sit there. I require that they stay focus and complete their work...and what do you know? It works! I would love for my entire classroom to be filled with flexible seating, but for now, a few will make a difference. I know that when students are relaxed and comfortable, it will increase their engagement and thus, increase learning.
