I started out the year with 17 amazing students in my class. However, there has been a change in our school and the week before Spring Break, we welcomed 10 second graders into our 3rd grade class. We are all excited about this new adventure. The third grade students have been very welcoming and have taken on the role of mentors. It has been heartwarming to witness their compassion and kindness. They have even stopped using flexible seating until we can get enough for the entire class!
Having a growth mindset is key in our room, so we know that we can make this transition a positive adventure for everyone.
We believe that we can all learn with hard work and positive attitudes! We put our energy into learning because we know that we can grow by engaging in challenging work.
Here's to becoming the best that we can be!
We recently welcomed 10 new 2nd grade classmates and would love for them to experience flexible seating options as well. Balance balls, floor seats, bean bag chairs, chair kick bands, and wiggle seats have all made such a positive impact on student engagement and productivity. Students appreciate having options and have learned to advocate for themselves in regards to their learning environment.
Flexible seating helps our students to focus while learning.
Balance balls are a particular favorite among students, with kick bands coming in a close second. Our class needs more flexible seating options so that all students have choice.
