My Students

Our classroom is filled with 21 bright and energetic students who love school. We live in a tight knit community and our schools are an integral part of that community.

My students are eager to learn and love to collaborate and explore.

They come to school ready to learn and engage in new activities. They love hands-on learning and collaboration with team members.

Our classroom is a safe place for students to show their best work and learn skills that will take them to new heights.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making them feel comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are more engaged when they are allowed to choose their seat and are able to focus more in the classroom.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make a more effective learning environment. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an incentive for students who are performing well in class and following class rules, as another seating option.

I have seen how this alternative seating choice will positively promote learning in my classroom. This gives every child a chance to feel successful in the classroom.
