My room is composed of fourth-grade students who are eager and ready to learn. Every child in my classroom learns differently. Individualizing instruction and the learning environment are keys to success for all students.
The classroom atmosphere can greatly impact the achievement and success of students.
While many of the students in my classroom are successful with traditional seating, flexible seating will help reach those who are not the typical learner. I want my students to be empowered, confident, and excited to learn.
As a teacher, I am constantly looking for ways to motivate and empower my students. The classroom environment is essential to how a student learns. A child should be comfortable and confident in his or her learning space.
Flexible seating promotes collaboration, problem-solving, and open communication.
A variety of furniture and learning spaces will allow students to communicate freely and work with small groups and partners more effectively. I have found that when students have the choice in where they sit and who they collaborate with, they are more interested in their learning. I want my students to be college and career ready and flexible seating will help foster this mindset.
