My Students

"I can't believe I just read a whole sentence all by myself! That was amazing!" My students are amazing. I love seeing my students progress and learn. It is always busy and active in my room. We are a class full of learners.

My students enjoy a lot of movement.

Their favorite part of the day is when they play in Centers. They love to play educational games and build things. My students like to work in centers and move from activity to activity.

My Project

I have very active kindergarten students. It is a struggle for them to sit in a plastic chair for most of the day. Most of my students like to move around. They like to sit in a regular chair at a table for one or5 two lessons, but then move to another part of the room with a yoga ball chair. My students enjoy a lot of movement. The students would benefit from the Gaiam Kids Balance Ball Chairs and Urban Shop Zebra Faux Fur Saucer Chairs. The laundry basket seating will help some of my students who like their own personal, cozy space. The students will focus, work, and learn in the laundry baskets with their clipboards or lap trays. They enjoy sitting on some different seating that I made such as milk crates with cushions and cable spools with cushions.

I believe seating options may promote positive behaviors and allow students to focus on their learning.

Flexible seating will allow my students to be more comfortable and more relaxed. My students would benefit greatly from your thoughtfulness and generosity.
