If we really truly want to prepare our students for the real world, we need to put them in responsive, dynamic environments that reflect our life outside of a classroom norm. And what’s that life outside like? We as adults have a life full of choices, where WE are responsible for OUR own learning. We get to choose where we sit, where is most comfortable, where we will be the most successful and produce our best work. The mission statement at our school is "Creating Leaders and Learners for Life". To create leaders and learners for life my first step is to cater my classroom to the 21st century learner, letting my diverse population learn where they do their best learning, thinking, and growing. Having a variety of different seating options in my classroom will be that very important first step. The stability balls and balance boards will allow my students with extra wiggles to sit and work while moving their bodies. Being able to move and work without bothering the others around them. Allowing my students to practice what works best for their learning will not only benefit them this year but will be a lesson that they will use for the rest of their life. So why not start young?
