My students all live in a rural, high poverty community, which only limits them in resources available, not in a thirst for knowledge and an excitement to learn. We form an eclectic group ranging from highly gifted to challenged learners, with every learning style represented!
These 6th grade students excitedly embrace any opportunity they are given for new and innovative learning practices.
Our classroom family members bring many different learning needs to our table, and these differences make us unique!
My class family is energetic and diverse. In order to foster a unique and open atmosphere in my classroom, we need alternative seating. These seating changes will be used to engage students' minds, as well as aid those suffering from ADHD and sensory processing deficits. Students learn more effectively if they feel they have choice, some control, and a freedom to learn in an environment conducive to their needs. The youth of today are accustomed to a fast-paced technological society, leaving the traditional classroom setting at a disadvantage. New and innovative classroom environments will serve to engage these students as they learn. These alternative seating methods will give them a place to move, get comfortable and free their minds to create and design more effectively!
