My Students

My classroom will consist of nearly 21 amazing hungry for learning students.

Of those 21 about half come from low-income families.

I want to unlock each and every one of their minds to enhance their yearning for learning that will hound down on their way to move around the class that best suits their needs of learning.

Giving the ability and encouraging of moving around their classroom, their minds will be stimulated enough to seek out the different ways to learn through movement and comfortable areas to learn that best suits through learning needs.

My Project

Flexible seating actively brings students into the classroom-design discussion. It lets them identify the kinds of furniture, such as chairs, stools, rockers, etc., that they find most comfortable, and gets them motivated to learn. Who wants to sit on an uncomfortable chair on and off throughout the instructional day?

The students will also be learning through their kinetic skills as well.

Who said that learning isn't fun? Through the engagement of using the Qball will get the students excited to learn, being engaged in the lesson, and just having fun all the while through learning. It's a proven fact that while students are moving around the classroom or even passing something around that keeps them on their knows improves their ability to think quicker and improves their attention and engagement in a lesson.
