Flexible Learning

Help me give my students the magnetic dry erase slant board so they can take their learning anywhere in the room. The flexible seating will allow those who need to get their wiggles out to continue to learn.

My Students

My students are in a Title I school. They are a bunch of silly, happy, loving, and eager-to-learn first graders in an ICT setting (Integrated Co-teaching), where both the general education students and students with disabilities are together, learning the same curriculum. This special setting allows my adorable kiddos to learn how to accept and help one another. My adorable kiddos understand that each and every one of their friends learns differently. They understand that despite their differences, they are the same.

My Project

The flexibility in learning is so important for students - especially young students and for students with disabilities. The magnetic dry erase slant boards, lap desks, wobble chairs, and floor chairs will give my students the flexible environment they need in order to learn. Sitting still is no easy task for adults let alone a young child. The wobble chairs will allow my students, without interrupting their friends’ learning, to get their energy out in order to stay focus and learn. The lap desks, slant boards, and floor chairs will give my students other options to learning besides being confined to their desk. If they learn best sitting on the floor - why not? If they learn best by drawing out their thoughts and manipulating materials while sitting in the library corner, then the magnetic dry erase slant board would be perfect. Learning should not be confined to one space.
