My Students

I teach in a Title I school in Oklahoma where 100 percent of the students receive free/reduced breakfast lunch. Many students receive backpack food for the weekends. My students come from a low income area, but are excited to come to school to learn.

All of my students come to class eager to learn and show me what they already know.

They love to sit in class and learn new things just like adults do. They have many dreams that they want to accomplish in the future and in the present.

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. 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 products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The stretchy bands that are for the bottom of chairs will be great for students with ADHD to allow them to move without making noises. The stretchy bands and wobble chairs will benefit all of the students 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!
