When you walk into our classroom, you will usually hear a lot of talking, notice a lot of movement and see a lot of students hard at work. The energy in the room is palpable.
Flexible seating in our classroom has allowed students the movement and adaptability to find the right space to produce their best work.
Our school is a smaller school district, but this is one of our larger class sizes, at 22 students. I have 2 students who receive special education services for academics, I have 2 ESL students, and I have a handful of students who struggle in the area of reading. There are also some students who struggle with behavioral issues that need to be dealt with on a daily basis. Hence, the palpable energy in the room; most days good energy.
Flexible seating has become a reality in my classroom. I kept a few desks, but have also received some tables. I have standing desks, floor rockers, rocking chairs and stability balls as seating options in my classroom. This has been a successful change for my classroom this year.
The struggle we are having right now is storing students' personal materials.
These drawers would give each child a space for their paper supplies. The best thing is that they have a space in the cart, but the drawers can also be removed and moved to wherever the student needs to take it.
