Help me give my students options for flexible seating so they can be successful learners!
At the beginning of every school year, I read the book "The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School" with my students. The story ends with the quote: "Fact One: We are smart! Fact Two: We can get it! Fact Three: We belong! And Four: Don't forget it!" Everyday we start the morning saying that quote as a class.
The students at my school are an incredible group of enthusiastic, energetic, creative and bright students.
The demographic makeup of my school is very diverse with over 15 different languages spoken. Additionally, over ninety percent of my students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Stemming from a variety of different reasons, many of my students already believe that they cannot accomplish much academically. Everyday I push my students to challenge themselves and make accomplishments as students, citizens within our community and lifelong learners.
Research shows that when children are given opportunities to move, and more specifically, when they are provided with flexible seating in the classroom, there are dramatic improvements. Improvements in attention span, academic achievements, social and emotional health, and so much more!
I want to create a classroom environment that allows my kindergarten students to feel comfortable and successful.
The addition of these flexible seating options will do that for them!
Throughout our day, students engage in many different independent and small group learning times. Right now, all students have to sit in a chair at a table, which is not the best learning environment for all kids. With the use of cushions, bean bags, wobble chairs and pillows, my students will be able to choose which seat is best.
