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 clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard. 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 Calm Down area is needed in order to help maintain the focus of other students away from the other student who is currently having their meltdown. Having a safe space for them to express their emotions will be really beneficial for them. With no classroom materials around this area, students can independently compose themselves. This space can also serve the other students as a place where they are able to interact with one another in order to build their social and communication skills. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices as well as a space for them to regain their focus. Having the carpets in certain areas of the room can help the adult support to direct the student who needs to have a space to express themselves while being away from the other students for safety. The interactive toys will be used for manipulative as well as conversation starters.
