My students need more seating options. Variety adds excitement, choices and autonomy.
Has a child every inspired you with their questions or responses? What about seeing the excitement of learning in their eyes? Well, my students inspire me daily for these reasons. I have such a diverse group of students, from their ability levels, socioeconomic status, and interests to their customs, beliefs and future aspirations. These 4th graders are certainly different from each other, but one of the areas they all have in common is their quest for knowledge. Fortunately, I get to work with them another year as their 5th grade teacher.
Not many students are willing to give up their lunch time to work, but many of my students regularly request it!
Sometimes it's to finish reading an exciting book or complete a project. Or maybe it's our chrome book day and they want to research and finish a google slide presentation, or work on a math program. Whatever the reason is, it's directly linked to their insatiable quest for knowledge and their growth mindset. Another reason might be my classroom atmosphere. I've heard students refer to it as homey and comfortable. I want to develop and improve that by adding flexible seating options, motivating them even further.
Seating in classrooms has evolved over the years. Classroom environments should be comfortable and inviting. That includes choosing your own type of seat for the day. This type of atmosphere motivates students to learn and work independently.
It's boring sitting on the same hard plastic chair for upwards of 5 hours a day.
Knowing that you will have a choice of where to spend your time learning and working will encourage more of both. That's why I'm requesting these Go Anywhere Chairs, folding bench, and lapdesks. Students can pick where they'd like to sit, and what they'd like to sit on. Variety is the spice of life. (The supply caddy will keep them organized away from the traditional desk.)
