My Students

My 3rd grade public school students enjoy moving around the room to complete classwork, read books, and use technology. Giving students a choice to sit around the classroom using flexible seating helps to build independent and responsible citizens. I also like to make my classroom feel like "a home away from home" and flexible seating allows for comfort, building community, and collaboration.

I use a program called, Daily Five, which allows my students to work independently, work with a partner, and meet with the teacher in a small group every day for reading and math.

My Project

In my class of 21 students, I find it beneficial to pull small groups of 4 or 5 students at a time to work with so I can differentiate my learning toward each specific group.

As I'm working with that small group of students, the other 16 students are working on independent work or collaborating with a partner completing their assignments.

Flexible seating allows the students to spread out around the room instead of sitting in hard seats and desks for about 90 minutes.

Every 15 to 20 minutes, I pull a new group to work with and students are able to change their spot.
