In my classroom my students are provided a loving, safe, clean, and happy environment where learning is a team effort and everyone has a place to call home! As a teacher in a low-income school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I work at a Title I school where most students are on free or reduced lunch and come from families who are migrant workers or work in the farming community. I want them to explore and have experiences that they wouldn't otherwise get to have. I would like to bring flexible seating into my classroom using a variety of seating choices other than tables and chairs. Using flexible seating is a valuable tool for all students and their learning needs allowing them to choose their seating that they feel suits them best while learning! This type of seating and environment provides a feeling of warmth and security where our classroom feels like a second "home"!
I have chosen this project because it will be a big and wonderful change for my students. We have tables and chairs that the students work on and a carpet. I know that students need choices, enjoy moving around and are excited when they do not have to sit at a table to work.
I want to create a space that is fun and flexible and meets my students needs in my classroom.
If students choose the sit spots, wobble chairs, or bean bags, it will allow them to find a comfortable place to work and be creative. I would use the bench by putting centers below it and students could work collaboratively in a space that is comfortable and different at the same time! Thank you for making a difference in my classroom!
