My students need these items to better their learning experience. Items like the exercise ball, bouncy bands and stools offer students different seating that help improve their focus and maximize their learning.
Sixth grade is an exciting grade! It the last year of elementary school in my rural Indiana school which means a lot to these kids. I want to give my students the best experience I can provide by giving them a comfortable and welcoming learning environment as we navigate through sixth grade together. One way that I can do that is by providing them with every day school essentials as well as a few fun flexible seating items to help them focus.
You learn something new every day if you pay attention and giving my students flexible seating will enable my students to learn many new things each day!
Our school may be small but my students have big ambitions and work hard at meeting their goals. I am honored to be there to guide them.
Being comfortable while learning is essential, so by giving students the choice to explore alternative seating options give students the ability to find new ways that help them optimize their learning abilities. This also helps them enjoy school a little bit more.
I want my classroom to be a comfortable and welcoming technology driven learning environment where we share our experiences as a team.
The items that I have carefully chosen will help my students by giving them the option to make effective learning choices. Exercise balls allow students to sit at a table and bounce and move while working to help them focus and not distract their classmates. Bouncy Bands go on the chairs of regular seats and nervous students can fidget with them to help give them an outlet for their extra energy. All of these items have all been proven to help fidgety students and regular students focus and will be extremely beneficial in our classroom. All the additional seating options will give the classroom a relaxed and productive atmosphere.
I have had the opportunity to see how choice can positively affect student's work in other classrooms and this is one aspect that I MUST have in my classroom. I know that alternative seating options will help them learn even more and promote a positive and comfortable learning environment!
