My 1st grade students come to school ready to learn with a smile on their face every day! My classroom is an inclusion room that includes students with special needs. I teach at a Title I school which means the majority of my students receive free or reduced lunch.
My project will enhance the learning for 15 diverse students.
My goal is to provide my students with the best learning environment. I want them to love school and learning. I want to help my students to meet their maximum potential. It is important that my students learn to be good community members.
Flexible seating allows students to have some choice in their learning. Students choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting in our library with clipboards, or on the carpet with lap boards.
Students who are comfortable are more motivated.
I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating (especially during Writer's Workshop). They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
