My Students

My students need flexible seating options to maximize student achievement in the classroom. I have a very energetic group of third graders who would benefit from having the opportunity to move around the room.

Our school population consists of more three hundred and fifty students with more than half receiving free or reduced price lunch.

Despite the increase in poverty level in our community, the majority of our students attend school daily and work hard to succeed.

Third grade is such a monumental grade in regards to district and state testing, and the expectations for these eight and nine year olds is very high. I want to make their third grade year as memorable, fun and educational as possible.

My Project

Flexible seating is a wonderful way to keep students engaged in learning. I have a classroom of twenty boys and eight girls. Many of my boys have a hard time being still during independent work time. During this time, they are given the opportunity to sit anywhere they like in the classroom to work. Most of them choose to sit in the two bean bag chairs that I have. Since I only have two chairs, many of my students end up sitting on the floor.

These wobble chairs will help my students stay focused while getting their wiggles out at the same time.

I am so excited to see the how these chairs will help my students stay focused and ultimately increase academic achievement.
