My students are curious and eager learners. They see themselves as lifelong learners and love each other fiercely. My second graders lift each other up and aim high when they set their goals.
I am the luckiest and most privileged teacher to be among the kindest and most determined students.
They find joy in the simplest things...the first snowfall, a crisp new book, listening as I read to them, a hug as they enter the door, or my silly stories about my family.
My mission is to create a comfortable, safe, and welcoming learning environment for all learners! These comfy floor seats would be the perfect addition to our classroom.
By providing my students with options for flexible seating, students are given more autonomy and are able to learn in a way that is most conducive to their needs.
Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work! It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed.
Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive. As one teacher said, “There is no better way to show your support for a student-centered classroom, than creating a classroom from a child’s point of view.” In my opinion, comfortable students are engaged students.
