My Students

In our high diversity, Title I school, we meet students "where they are!" We have high academic expectations for students but maintain the need for celebration, movement, and fun! For six and seven-year-old learners, making choices in our learning is key to engagement and success!

Let's face it, school budgets just aren't diverse enough to meet every need in the classrooms of today.

We need things that just don't fit under that "supplies" heading on the purchase order. That's where you come in!

My Project

Flexible seating allows young students to make choices in their learning. By choosing a location in the classroom that works for them, students are comfortable and engaged in the task at hand. My first-grade students choose to work in a variety of locations in our room. Some favorites include sitting or lying on the floor. When first graders are given the choice of where to work, the productivity in the classroom skyrockets! The comfy floor seats that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options in our classroom. The power of choice is undeniable. When adults choose the content and the tasks to be completed, it is in my favor to allow my six and seven-year-olds to choose freely to sit and learn where they do it best. We are "A Growing Class" when we make good choices about our own learning!
