Help me give my students flexible seating options around our classroom to help meet the needs of different types of learners!
My fourth grade students are smart, energetic and outgoing young children! I'm a special education, self-contained teacher in a classroom with eight students and a classroom aide. My students have varying disabilities including emotional, behavioral and learning. One of our biggest daily struggles is having active or disengaged students to be able to sit, read and complete work for long periods of time.
With a variety of seating options around the class, my students have the opportunity to take ownership over their learning.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met. Please help support my classroom for more flexible seating options!
For those of you who may not be familiar with flexible seating, there are many benefits of using it in the classroom! These options allow students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, independent reading times and group work, students have the chance to choose their seats. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room. They choose different tables or sit with clip boards on the floor or on a rug in the classroom. My eight students have a wide range of learning needs and helping them express or find out how they learn best in the classroom, will help them every single day. In order to effectively teach all students, I want to be able to give them as many choices as possible! Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.
I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating.
They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. I appreciate any help you can give to enhance student learning in our class!
