My students are passionate about learning and they love school! They especially love taking the information they learn and bringing it home to share with their family.
My goal is to not only make school fun, but also to give my students a comfortable and engaging environment.
My students are energetic and they always love when we use different strategies to get up and move around. I try to get the kids moving often to keep their focus but also because we are not meant to sit for long periods.
Not all students are able to sit for multiple hours at a time. It is so difficult to stay seated on a metal chair when you are a child with endless energy.
Flexible seating allows students to stand, sit on the floor, and stay moving to help keep them focused.
I give my students many opportunities to decide what is best for them. Now I would like to add in seat options for them!
Stability balls allow students to bounce as they work as well as engage their core muscles. Seat cushions are wonderful for the more active students who need the back support because they struggle to stay up on a stability ball. Floor options are always a great choice for students who either want some quiet time away from their group or who want to sit and stretch their legs out.
