I love the cultural diversity and multiple intelligences that my students bring to our learning environment. Every student contributes their own personal experiences, interests, and talents that enliven our daily learning experiences.
This school year I will be working with a group of 35 students, ten are English Language Learners, and seven are diverse learners with individualized educational plans.
What makes them special is their resilience and perseverance to overcome challenges in their own learning experiences. My students thrive when they are given choice and encouraged to find the answers to their own lingering questions. The greatest satisfaction is guiding my students through their own inquiry and observing their elation when they have succeeded at a task.
I have 35 students in my classroom this year and not enough space to comfortably accommodate them. I have two rectangular tables in my class that can seat 6 students, but I now have to turn each table into a group of 8 students in order to have 35 seats. Seating 8 students using the traditional chairs will be very tight and uncomfortable at the tables. The legs of the chairs end up getting stuck as students try to move in and out of their seats.
The wobble stools are not as bulky as the traditional chairs so they will provide my students with much more space.
They will also allow my students to move around freely without disrupting the students next to them. Comfort is SO important while learning. The wobble stools will help me create a comfy and cozy learning environment.
