My Students

I have a diverse class of wonderful students. They all have their own wonderful quirks and personalities. Many of my students come from low income households but that does not prevent them from creating some truly amazing things. Over this last school year we have built a very supportive community where I can tell that my students truly care about one another.

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

I hope that this project can help them better reach their full potential.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During small group time, students are asked to move around the classroom, providing them flexible seating options will help them maintain their focus throughout the lesson. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given alternative seating options. 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 sit when they work.

The wobble seats and balance cushions that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools will allow students to sit at desk 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!

I have seen how seating choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that these additional options will help my students learn and grown even more!
