Mrs. Perkins’ Classroom Edit display name

https://www.donorschoose.org/classroom/6007612 Customize URL

I want to transform my classroom into a calm, comfortable, more inviting learning environment. Flexible seating choices will allow my students to take charge of their learning and to have the freedom to move. With more flexible choices, they can choose the location and type of seating that works best for them and allows them to be comfortable while learning and completing assignments. Motivation is key, and being comfortable is a huge motivator. The items that I have chosen will help my students by giving them additional seating options so they can make more effective learning choices. For those students who have a hard time sitting still and just need to move, the ball chairs will allow them the movement and flexibility they need to help them focus. I plan to use the stools at a taller table for my taller students so that they don’t have to fold themselves into a regular student chair. This option will also stand or lean without distracting or blocking the view of others. I plan to lower two of my tables to the floor and use the cushions as seats for those children who work better on the floor. I have a window seat in my classroom, so I am going to use the bench cushion to create a comfy seating nook for my students. I know that choice can positively affect my students’ work and attitude toward learning, and I hope that these flexible choices will help them grow and be more confident learners!
