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. Our classroom is like family. For many of them this IS their home away from home. This project they will enable my students to figure out how they learn best, and then be able to work in that setting.The couch, bungee chairs and floor cushions will give them some more options for them to choose to work. It will also help further foster our sense of family and allow them to explore how they learn best! This project will also help continue to build their self-confidence and work towards their future success. Our eyes are always on high school graduation-and if I can give my students a place where they can relax, be themselves and learn in an environment that is conducive to THEM specifically then I think I can more easily keep them on the track towards graduation.
