My Students

I love how interested in learning my students are! They work so diligently each day and never complain! They soak up everything and just want to please me! They are an amazing group of brilliant little people! I want to give them the world and create a comfortable place to facilitate as much quality learning as possible! I believe that by creating this type of classroom environment my students will engage more and be ready to learn each and every day!

My Project

If my students were gifted with this amazing flexible seating they would be able to sit comfortably in a variety of ways. We meet in learning stations for 75% of our day and I would like them to have alternatives to standard chairs! They are busy little third graders that don’t always work best in a chair! Some like to stand, some like to rock and some like to wiggle! I want to keep them comfortable and safe while delivering quality instruction for my little sweethearts! I have requested wiggle stools that the students can sit on but wiggle without falling out of the chair. I have also asked for ball seats to provide an alternate seating arrangement during centers. Our chairs are so big and our tables are small so I either have too many standard chairs or chairs that the kids can’t see over the table! I just want to give them something different and unique that they can use in order to get excited about transitioning into centers. These items will pass with the fire Marshall which is a huge factor when designing a flexible seating environment in your classroom! Thank you in advance! I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this and learn more about my sweet little superhero’s!
