The ability level of students in my classroom ranges from kinder to about 3rd/4th grade. Thus, creating time and space to work with smaller groups or even 1-on-1 with the teacher is ideal! Students buy in when they feel invited and can find some level of comfort. Creating a relationship that brings joy is key! When reading, whether it be alone or with someone else, having a pillow to relax on and snuggle up ensures students stay engages and "in their own bubble" the whole time they are expected to be doing such a task. If also helps the teacher with behavior management because they are engaged, rather then up, walking around, or distracted. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are excited to use these "tools" when reading! When students are deep into working on writing, having a lap desk to find a comfortable or a safe setting to let the creative juices flow, creates an opportunity for that student to go beyond their comfort zone and step into a new realm of possibilities. My goal as their teacher is to give these students as many creative opportunities as possible to cultivate a positive relationship with their learning. Developing school as a comfortable and safe setting to be AND cultivating confidence is our first steps in creating life-long learners! Thanks for helping!
