My Students

Kindergartners are inquisitive and engaged learners. They are kinesthetic learners that love to read and explore the world around them. Young learners like to have a variety of learning spaces that offer different equipment and materials allowing them to decide where they are most productive, to be creative, collaborate with others or work independently while meeting the need for them to explore and learn.

Students will have an opportunity to have areas where they can organize their personal belongings that would allow them to know where materials are as they need them.

This project will help offer high-quality experiences to my students!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. In my classroom, children work independently or in small groups most of the day. They choose to work in different areas in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. 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.
