My Students

Every child in my classroom loves to learn and has their own unique style that helps them to feel successful. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, independant work and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! My students are amazing and demonstrate what they are capable of every day. I am truly blessed to get to work with them and witness what they are capable of on a daily basis. Every child deserves the best learning environment possible.

My Project

Flexible seating in the classroom gives students the opportunity to take charge of their own learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they can choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, when my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed many differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They tend to focus and stay engaged in the lessons when they are able to move in their seats. This allows them to complete their work and keep their minds active.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

Allowing students to sit on yoga balls rather than chairs allows them to move, which not only keeps them engaged in their learning, but also stimulates the brain to focus. I have students with different needs and giving them seating options will only improve their learning opportunities inside the classroom.
