My second graders are an exciting group of students to teach ! This year, more than any other year, I had a group of students that had many special needs. This made teaching quite challenging! I had students that read from ranges of pre-primer to 4th grade level. Overall, they struggled with math and problem solving skills. I had to constantly research ways to reach them, to keep them focused on learning.
My students loved singing, dancing, games, and any type of hands-on learning!
Flexible seating will give my students freedom to make choices in their valuable instruction time at school.
Last year I started giving my students more choices in where they sat in the classroom during independent learning time.
I noticed a big difference in their focus/ engagement when they could choose their own “spot” in the classroom.
I feel the items I have asked for will greatly benefit students who need that extra “wiggle” to accomplish daily tasks, and allow all students more freedom in learning . Students will be more engaged, collaborate more with peers, and take learning ownership .
