My students need flexible seating options like cushions, stools, pillows, lap desks and fidget bands that allow them to feel more focused and comfortable in the classroom. They especially enjoy working on the rug and need comfortable options to allow them to complete their work.
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They love coming to school everyday ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. They are such an inspiration!
Each child in my classroom loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.
We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
Students that are provided with opportunities to move and choose a space where they feel comfortable to complete work are more motivated and engaged in the classroom. Flexible seating allows students to choose seating options that best suit their learning needs. Students will have the option to choose between stools, floor pillows, wobble disks, etc.
We are requesting a wide variety of seating options such as fidget bands, wobble cushions, pillows, lamps, and lap desks in order to meet the needs of many students, some of which need to exert energy or some which need a quiet, cozy work space to reach their full potential.
My goal is to create an environment that allows students to have the freedom to choose their seating in order to help them focus during the school day. It also facilitates independence and decision makers who know they have a say in their education and needs.
Flexible seating will enable my students to be more engaged and motivated. Students will be excited to come to school where they have a say in their learning and more importantly, be able to be successful!
