Spearfish Middle School. Because her classroom will become the Library classroom, this grant would be used to purchase materials to provide students with flexible seating opportunities. Her goal is to create a classroom space that is welcoming and safe to students. In her STEM and computer Science courses students do work that is independent, partnered, or in groups. Students need to be able to move around in a variety of ways. Her classroom next year will have regular height tables with some standard chairs. Stability ball chairs will help students who need to move more. They are great for posture and strengthening core muscles. The bottoms are smooth and curved so students can rock if needed. The bean bag chairs, cushions and reading pillows will be for student to work on the floor independently or with partners. They can use the foldable tabletop stands to hold laptops or paperwork while sitting on the floor or floor seating. Giving students a choice provides increased student engagement. This will be utilized in Makerspace and Spartan Tech Squad groups as well.
