Help me give my students an opportunity to learn while supporting their sensory and kinesthetic needs. Our classroom will benefit from this flexible learning space as it will provide a small group learning area.
My students have social/emotional disabilities which impact their ability to focus and learn. For the last 20 years I have worked in high school and middle. I am now moving to elementary and want to impact my students learning needs with modern strategies. My goal this year is to continue to develop their classroom readiness skills by providing sensory equipment to help them focus and build both academic and emotional learning needs. This will help them achieve what they need to be ready to return to mainstream school campuses.
The flexible seating table will provide my students with the ability to learn in a small group setting while supporting their sensory needs. Why Flexible Seating? Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. This table removes the standard expectations of a classroom that has negatively impacted my students with special needs. This table along with the chairs provides each student the opportunity to work comfortably while engaging in learning tasks.
