My Students

I teach at a school with 100% free lunch. Many students only receive food while in school. Children come from homes that at times do not have basic needs such as electricity and water. Older children have responsibilities such as watching younger siblings and taking care of the home while parents work.

Building community and future leaders are important qualities at our school.

Students have so many factors that hinder learning, issues such as abuse, drug use, neglect, poor living conditions, lack of food, and lack of clothing. Most students live in single parent homes, and the absence of one parent creates much stress that is sometimes hard to bear. Even with all these issues, students do want to learn.

My Project

Today students need more options for doing school work. The traditional desk and chair does not always work for all students. Flexible seating classrooms bring more of a home feel and allow students to move more freely around the room.

Students do their best work when they feel comfortable.

Flexible seating gives options. These options allow students to pick where they would like to sit and work. This allows students to be more creative and work closer together when in groups. Flexible seating allows more community and less clutter that traditional desks tend to gather.

The portable laptop desks will be used by students to create stories and work on skills in math and reading. Our class uses Google Classroom and these desks will allow students to work anywhere in the room. The foldable tables will be used with the cushions for workspace in centers. Most desks will be cleared from the room so these tables will make great work centers. In all, 20 students at one time can use the flexible seating. This will allow me to meet with more students daily to assess individual needs.

Flexible seating will help my students relax and really enjoy learning. This environment will allow more communication and collaboration between students and teacher. More time working together and less time cleaning out a cluttered desk.
