My students can best be described as creative, inquisitive, and extremely bright! Every student brings a unique story into the classroom, and some days bring more challenges than others. The one thing that is always clear is their eagerness to be in a classroom where they feel safe, cared for, and comfortable enough to learn.
If you walk through our classroom you will see students working in a comfortable nook, collaborating with their peers on a project, or eagerly sharing out their thoughts and strategies during a class discussion.
They love a challenge (especially science!) and they thrive on opportunities where they can be creatively free in their school work.
My students are a group of bright, creative thinkers! They bring a wealth of knowledge into the classroom, whether it's their approach to solving problems or sharing their ideas through meaningful discussions. Our current seating arrangement is a more traditional one, which allows them to sit at tables. I think having a flexible seating arrangement will give them the creative freedom to work in different areas of the room, further enhancing their creativity and critical thinking.
As my students get ready to transition into the next stage of their schooling, I feel it is important for them to experience more choice and accountability.
They can decide whether they want to sit on the floor for the day, using an oversized pillow, or use a wobble cushion for the days that they feel extra wiggly.
By creating a flexible seating environment, students will be coming into a classroom where their choices are valued.
