Alternate seating in our classroom would be a dream come true! My students need a variety of seating options including a wobble stool, 10 ball chairs, floor cushions and 5 stools. The new furniture I am requesting will provide the students with a different option besides a hard chair. Students will be able to get comfortable in our classroom (sit, stand, kneel etc.) and work/learn more effectively. Giving the students the options to a variety of seating throughout the day will not only make them more comfortable, but this will also decrease attention problems and behavioral issues while increasing attention and focus in the classroom. The more the students can focus on learning the less I have to spend time correcting minor interruptions and thus more uninterrupted instruction time! This is a win-win situation for both teacher and student! :) I wish I could give my students the world! Unfortunately, many of my students come from disadvantaged homes and broken families. I would do anything to make their time in my classroom memorable and worthwhile. I believe that giving students a choice helps to empower them. When students are given the opportunity to choose their learning space, I believe that they will be more engaged and willing to learn. Through this project, I I want to maximize each students' learning experience by providing a better environment to be their best learning self! I can hardly wait to see how flexible seating will transform my classroom this year and the many years of students to come!
