My Students

I am a first-grade teacher and do not have the resources to provide my twenty-eight students' options for flexible seating. I would love the ability to provide my diverse students with a variety of seating options in our classroom.

Each student learns and processes information in a variety of ways.

My vision is to incorporate a variety of different learning strategies in my classroom which include flexible seating. Giving these amazing and diverse students the ability to have different types of seating can encourage a positive learning environment as well as one in which students have the ability to focus and stay on task. My goal is to instill a growth mindset within my students. When they are challenged with a difficult task, I will encourage and reinforce problem-solving strategies in which students will learn to become risk-takers in all life situations.

Flexible seating helps students be in control of their own learning!

My Project

The following flexible seating will give my students the opportunity to move and wiggle while still being able to focus and remain on task. With various types of seating in the classroom, students are free to make a choice of which seating option is best for their learning.

By giving them a choice, I am helping them begin to learn how to make appropriate decisions in order to make them more successful in the classroom.

Flexible seating will teach students how to be responsible and encourage them to work with others, building a positive learning environment. The folding chairs will allow students to move while still giving them back support.
