I teach 2nd and 3rd grade bilingual. I teach ELAR and Social studies to my bilingual students. I have approximately 19 third graders that come to me in the morning class and 14 second graders that come to me in the afternoon class. We are a part of a title 1 school and many of my students come from Low SES households and a vast range of ability levels and many different types of learners.
My students thrive in a fun environment that meets the many aspects of their needs while providing them with choices in their learning environment.
Flexible seating would help with ensuring that my students get to move and learn at their choice and what they feel is best to meet their learning needs.
Our classroom has many different learning needs and styles that we must meet in order for them to actively learn and accomplish their academic goals. Flexible Seating provides students the opportunity to make their personal choice in the environment seating that best fits their learning style.
Flexible seating allows for students to stay on task all while increasing their engagement and enhancing their academic learning.
With a variety of flexible seating options offered within the classroom it allows for them to succeed in a more "Flexible" environment. My hopes are to offer wobble stools, stability balls, soft cushions, and anything that may offer the comfort they need to focus and actively learn!
