How do you make your first grade classroom a place that students want to come to? You make it comfortable! Creating meaningful connections with students along with having a classroom environment that enables creativity, collaboration, and comfort are all pieces that help students to be more successful. Allowing students to have the flexibility and choice and how they learn has shown positive affect on student learning. My students come from all walks of life. They are hurricane Harvey survivors who overcame overpopulated classrooms while recovering from the disaster. I want my classroom to be a place of safety and comfort for them to be the best they can be!
This year I introduced flexible seating in my classroom. That means that I allow students to choose where they sit. They may choose an option that helps them promote their best learning. So far, my students have been very successful with this. One of the things I have noticed is that students have to to use books under their papers in order to complete their work.
Instead of books, the lap desks can be used!
Lap desks can be used multiple ways, so they are very versatile! Learning will be so much better with something to sit and write on!
