I am a first-year teacher working in a Title I district. The group of students I will be teaching are very unique and different from any other group of student I have had the pleasure of teaching over the past year. Many students in my class come from low-income households and close to 80% of my district is receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Some of my students are ELL and need extra support. Most teachers in the district spend their own money buying supplies for their students because there are no extra funds.
I want to give my students the best learning experience possible and I hope to do that by getting them the supplies they need to have a successful and productive year in second grade.
It is important to me that my students' experiences in school are meaningful and they are able to feel like part of a community, free from the stresses of their home life.
I would love to incorporate these Flex Space wobble cushions, bean bag chair, and floor seat options into my classroom for my students. These flexible seating options will be used around the classroom as different places for students to do their learning. They can use them during all parts of the day. Flexible seating is great for all students and can tailor to them in different ways. All students are different and learn in unique ways.
By providing my students with Flex Space seating I know they will be able to learn better because they will be in a seating option best for their learning style.
I hope that by including flexible seating in my classroom my students will be able to find what option best works for their individual needs.
