My Students

My class is made up of twenty-two, energetic students with creative minds. We are a part of a small school in a tight-knit rural community. My students understand the importance of having a growth mindset and it shows in their eagerness to learn! They think, wonder and question. They are motivated in everything they do!

My students love working together to imagine and create!

They enjoy hands-on activities where the learning is student-led and they are free to explore and grow. It has been amazing to watch them plan and produce projects from their own ideas.

My class loves to move around the room while working. Most enjoy collaborating in small groups, while others like to work and create independently!

My Project

Wobble chairs, which are a type of flexible seating, will help my students to feel empowered by allowing them to have some control over their work environment. It will encourage them to find their best spot to stay focused and productive. My kids work in many areas around the room during math and language arts literacy time, and wobble chairs would provide comfortable spaces for them, especially for those who are able to better concentrate while moving. It has been said that comfortable students are engaged students, and I believe this is true!

The best way to support a student-centered classroom​ is to create a classroom from a child's point of view!

My class will be given the chance to make choices to change locations and positions as needed. They will have the freedom of movement to best suit their needs. Flexible seating encourages a sense of community by supporting children in their ability to share space and take turns. Collaboration becomes second nature when students are easily able to pair up and work in small groups, due to the seating arrangements. Wobble chairs help make learning fun!
