My students are curious innovators who plan to explore the world around them. This excitement beings in the classroom. This group of 5th graders brings a sense of wonder to the classroom and to myself that I could never have expected. They are dreamers, the are pioneers, and they are the next generation of learners.
Modern learners require choice in their education and choice in their seating.
Flexible seating allows each student to work to their strength and achieve all that is set before them.
Modern students are active in their learning. My group of 5th graders is no different. They want to be active in their education and explore their academics in their own way. Flexible seating gives them the change to choose their seat and choose their learning path. Students no longer sit at desks, they sit on the floor, at pub tables, and on the carpet with lap desks.
Trailblazers don't sit at a desk; they seek out knowledge.
By using flexible seating in my classroom, my students will be able to pick their learning spot that works best for their brains. Each student is an individual and their learning spots should be too.
