My Students

School is an exciting place for my students! They are constantly finding new ways to challenge themselves and grow their brains. By trying new strategies, taking on challenges, and learning from their mistakes, we have learned that true learning comes from hard work.

Whether it's reading a new, engaging book or a math concept that makes them stop and think, my third graders are learning throughout their whole day at school.

However, there are always ways to reach more students and keep them focused throughout the entire day.

That's where we need your help!

My Project

Flexible seating is great for classroom culture. It provides students with choices and collaborative working experiences. For projects and group work, having a flexible seating area can help facilitate productive teamwork. It gives students a place to meet that isn't hindered by the set-up of the classroom.

Floor seats also provide a great opportunity for students to have a comfortable reading spot.

For reluctant readers, this can be a great motivational tool. Finding a cozy place where they can relax and engage with their book makes reading more enjoyable, even as an adult!

I would love to provide students with an environment that is homey and encourages learning at the same time. These seats would be a great help in our classroom!
