My students are loving, thoughtful, inquisitive and full of energy! They love collaborating with one another, creating projects and tackling challenges with a growth mindset! They come to school each day ready to problem solve and do their best. They are truly an incredible group that leaves me feeling like a super blessed teacher every day!
In my classroom, I want to be able to offer my students seating choices which would allow them to pick a spot that best suits their learning needs in order to reach their highest potential.
Every student in the classroom has a preferred place to work like on a yoga ball, couch, or even on the floor. My students are extremely hard workers and I would love to provide them with a comfortable space they can complete their best work in. I would love to provide a home away from home for these students; a safe space to learn.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. A colored printer would add so much life to our classroom! We do a lot of work on iPads and to be able to print in color would add so much life to our classroom!
My students are happy and engaged in their work a when they are given a choice of where to work and can see their work around the classroom.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The bench will be a great addition to our classroom and will give our my students a quite space to escape to. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The printer will be used to print out student work in color.
