I have not yet met my firsties but I already know they are going to love first grade and learning. Students at my school are amazing they are loving, caring and always eager to learn! I am coming from a PREK classroom where we were funded separately and now that I am moving to first grade I am in need of a few things. Unfortunately being at a Title One school makes it difficult to get new items funded for our classrooms.
This year I am making the switch to Flexible Seating.
Students work best in a happy, positive and differentiated classroom environment. Flexible seating will give my students ownership of where they choose to sit and learn to the best of their ability.
I have purchased most of the items needed for flexible seating, so my main focus is this classroom rug, and a couple other seating options.
The classroom carpet will be used for our morning meeting, large group and small group instruction.
Morning meetings set the tone for the rest of the day. Most of our large group instruction happens on the classroom rug. Large group instruction is where we all engage and learn as a whole so it is important that I have a place where all students can sit and learn together.
The wobble chairs and balance balls will give my students another choice of where their best learning can take place. Research shows that flexible seating promotes students, choice, physical health, comfort, community, collaboration, communication and fun.
