My Students

I am a current 2nd grade teacher in a HUGE school. It can sometimes feel difficult for every student to feel like an individual. It can also sometimes feel like we're packed in a classroom with little ability to move around and learn kinesthetically, a way that many of my students learn best. I am trying my best to combat that! My students are a diverse group of learners with a variety of needs. They are joyful, creative, and have tons of energy and personality! They love to move, sing, dance, and they LOVE to learn through play!

My students love the flexibility to choose what kind of work environment works for them.

Some like the traditional table and chair, some like to sprawl out on the floor, while others love to stand while working. As second graders who are soon to be third graders, they are learning to be independent and I want to be able to foster that as much as possible!

My Project

As an adult, do you find that you have a preferred spot to work, study, or even pay bills? Try working or trying to focus for more than 6 hours a day! Kids are constantly moving and fidgeting. We know that. We try to get them to stop and focus. Why? Why not let them learn in an environment that is comfortable for them.

My students are diverse learners with diverse needs.

In order to meet those needs, I am trying to foster a sense of independence while also incorporating more collaborative learning. I would like to incorporate flexible seating in my classroom so that my students can find a spot where they feel they can succeed and work together. I would love a standing table (hence the bed risers), a table of balance balls for students to be able to move a little, a floor table, and a table of wobble chairs. I am also asking for a few lap desks for students to work around the room and 2 lounge chairs to get cozy in for independent reading.

The idea is simple. Flexible seating and more choices means more successful learning!
