My Students

I have the absolute privilege to work with 27 4th graders this year. My students attend a Title I school which is also 100% free breakfast and lunch. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and challenges.

Some of the most impacting obstacles are providing my students with hands-on, active learning opportunities using flexible seating.

My students need a variety of flexible seating to meet the needs of their active minds and bodies. Giving them the best learning spot available can meet their comfort needs and therefore they can ‘grow their brain’ during learning time.

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

The product that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. These wobble stools will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. Finding an appropriate way to channel their energy will maximize everyone’s learning in the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
