TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students lap desks, wobble chairs, floor seats, and ball seats for options for flexible seating in our classroom that will provide them with a more successful learning environment.
I currently teach 26 third graders at a Title I school. My students are active and eager learners who enjoy being at school. I am excited to implement a more flexible learning environment, which will allow my students more choice in their learning as well as help to provide them more opportunities for success in the classroom. The truth is that students do not all learn in the same way. Many of my students have a difficult time sitting still and end up losing focus on what they are working on. Their options are limited in where they can move or sit, as I only have regular student chairs and the floor as a choice. As I guide my students through their school year, giving them options and control over their learning, I would also love to give them the power to choose WHERE in the classroom they can best focus and are most comfortable and successful.
I already know the value of giving my students the freedom and flexibility to choose their seating during instructional time. My students are happy when they get to choose their spot to work and have a sense of pride when they are productive and successful in their decision. Currently, my 3rd graders have the option to move from their desks to the floor or to the back table to do their work. Some students stay calmer and more focused when not sitting in a chair or at a traditional desk. Some can see the board or focus wall more clearly when they have the option of moving to the floor. I also have students who struggle with sitting still, keeping their chairs from tipping backward and bumping into other students' chairs and desks, or falling backward altogether! Providing my students with these new seating options will allow me to offer even more flexibility to their learning, which will, in turn, help my students to become more productive and successful!
