As a Title I school, most of my students receive free or reduced lunch. This labels us as a "poverty-stricken" school. I, however, feel that my students are stricken by poverty, but are able to make the most out of what they have. Unfortunately, what they have is not enough to succeed.
My seven students have moderate intellectual disabilities that I feel gives them the ability to do things but in a different way.
With this being said, my students have difficulties learning in a traditional environment and I am working on having an active learning classroom. These students have abilities that range from first grade and below. They are loving, caring, and just outright fun. Each day that I am around them I always have something to laugh about. Their ability to live their lives to the fullest without worrying about their disability makes me a better person.
The use of flexible seating in our classroom will increase the students' abilities to learn in their own way. They will be able to find the best seating option that fits their needs.
The use of stability balls, wobble chairs, stools, and pillows will allow my students to move around while learning and not be confined to a desk.
Some of my students can not physically sit in a desk and the options that they have been given in the past do not fit their needs.
Flexible seating is needed in my classroom so that my students are able to learn in a way that they can be successful.
