Imagine walking into a first grade classroom in August and the classroom that is engaing, well organized and welcoming to the eye. How would that make you feel? Research shows that classrooms that are well organized play a role in better behavior, more productivity and the feeling of being less stressed. With the different furniture, the students can have flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. The furniture that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make make more effective learning choices. The 4 cube shelves will be used as seats that they can lay on or sit during independent work. The shleves are to help with organization during independent work while giving them more options to choose from to increase responsibility to choose their own activities. Research shows that flexible seating, choose and organization helps all students reach their goals and their highest potiental. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more.
