My students need soothing weighted lap pillows and various flexible seating options.
I work with a magnificent group of students who live in an urban area and face a number of different challenges prior to walking through the doors of the school. The best part is that they do not let those challenges stop them from entering the school with a smile and a willingness to learn something new.
My students are honest, hard-working, fun-loving, and plain ole awesome.
As their teacher, I am charged with the duty to grow their brains, but there is not a day that goes by that they don't grow my heart.
Flexible seating is a necessity in every classroom. It offers the children the best opportunity to be successful. As adults we cannot sit for 6-7 hours a day, take in information, process the information, and then apply the information to show that we fully understand. Yet we ask our students to do it every day without offering them any choice. I want to change that in my classroom.
Giving students choices about their physical classroom space teaches them higher-order thinking skills.
It allows the students to make choices and problem solve which is a skill that they will use in the real word. Students need to move around at times which is why I would like the balance balls. Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch such as the tension bands and the weighted lap pillows. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information. As an educator, my job is to meet the needs of my students and realizing that some students need varied options. This is why flexible seating is a necessity.
