Can I Have a New Seat PLEASE!
My students need some flexible seating choices to get out of their seat and find comfortable places to work and learn!
I am new to the third grade world and I am loving the energy and enthusiasm. My students come to school everyday ready to dive into discovery and learning. The class is comprised of twenty-four eight and nine year olds. A significant amount of my students are Native American, several are Hispanic, and the rest are Caucasian. Diversity bring out the best in our classroom; we get to learn about different perspectives and histories. Our classroom also contains I high portion of free and reduced students. Our diversity only brings us closer and helps us understand ourselves and world better.
We work together to find solutions to problems and unearth new information.
Our days consists of collaborative learning and solving problems in a variety of ways. My students are inspiring young people. They have big dreams and see the best of things. They face challenges with eagerness. These kids are going somewhere and it is fun to watch them grow!
A big push in education is to create well rounded literate students. I pour hours into giving my students the best education I can. The lessons can go great, students are making connects, and I send them off to work and I have students who are sick of sitting in their desk. While laying on the hard floor is an option I want to create better places for students to move to.
Research has shown that flexible seating can allow students to stay engaged, enhance brain function, and students seem more engaged.
Students need to be able to move; it helps the brain stay fresh. Flexible seating allows students to do more movement and be comfortable working. As adults we don't sit it hard plastic chairs and children don't deserve to do it either.
Everyday we spend time reading to self and doing independent work. I want to provide students other environments to read and work that is outside of the desk and the floor.
