My Students

My fourth grade class is a diverse and unique group of 32 students. Most of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Even though my students may not have a lot, they come to school every day with smiles on their faces and ready to learn.

My students amaze me every day.

They try their best to focus on the curriculum that continues to challenge them every day. I have seen such great growth in my students and know that having more comfortable seating will help them succeed in the classroom.

My Project

My students enjoy to move around while they are learning. Whether they are working in small groups on a project, taking a test, or learning something new, they enjoy moving. Some students choose to sit on the floor, while others choose to stand up. I want my students to have the flexibility to choose how they can sit in my classroom.

I want to be able to meet the different needs of my students, and having flexible seating in the classroom would greatly help with that.

Having these different options of seating in my classroom will allow my students to grow and provide a comfortable learning environment. Students can choose from the wobbly chair, which will help those students who like to lean back in their chairs but not be dangerous. Students can also use the kneeling pads if they choose to come sit on the floor. This will help them be more comfortable. The wobble cushions and balance balls would fit the needs of my students who need to sit in a chair but move around at the same time. All of these flexible seating options will benefit each of my students in the way that they need it the best.
