My amazing co-teacher and I would love to provide our students with a variety of materials in our classroom that will aide their learning. We have been working hard to acquire all different types of alternative seating arrangements so that our students have a choice in where and how they feel like they can learn best. Currently my students are choosing from a variety of options in our room, including an exercise ball, stools, beanbag chairs, a standing desk, or laying on a mat with a clipboard. We have noticed, and our students have expressed, that them being able to choose where they complete their work improves their focus and engagement in their work tremendously. The products I have selected will help my students by giving them additional choices for them to sit. I have requested additional exercise balls (since we currently only have 1 and it is VERY popular!), stools for small group work, mats for us to expand our lay-down area, weighted lap pads that help to reduce anxiety, and cushions for additional floor seating. Being able to own your learning and feel comfortable with how you learn is an empowering experience. We seek to foster their awareness of their diversity as learners through transforming our classroom to meet the needs of our students and help them grow as students and as humans!
