As the new school year is approaching, I am looking forward to being able to work with a group of 25-28 bright and caring students. The 2018-2019 school year will be made up of a diverse group of students coming from many different backgrounds.
Our goal in our classroom is to create a community of leaders through leadership opportunities in and out of the classroom.
With guidance and encouragements these incredible students will accomplish greatness throughout the entire school year!
Flexible seating is a seating option in the classroom that changes day-to-day to support student success. With flexible seating classrooms, students are not up roaming around and playing, but instead this type of seating allows students the option to choose a spot where they feel most comfortable to complete work and be successful in their learning!
All day long I am asking my students to collaborate, critically think,plan, communicate their ideas, and put forth their best effort so that they will become successful leaders and learners!
But how can I expect them to do all this is they are stuck at their desk, are uncomfortable, or don't have enough room to be creative? So in a nutshell: Educational research is telling us that student choice helps students perform better in the classroom! Isn't that what we all want?
