Our school strives to find the leader in all students. Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. The students in my class strive for excellence.
The students I teach look forward to coming into English class and using their creativity to learn.
All of my students strive to do well in school and in their extracurriculars. My students are one of a kind and I want to give them the learning environment that works well for them.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times and the lesson they 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 under tables with clip boards, sitting on stools, crates, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. 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 desks.
With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.
They will have a reading area, in the room, that will allow the students to have more comfortable options to sit while reading. Our school will have AR next year, having more books in the room will allow the students to choose books in the classroom and not have to rely, just on, the library for AR books.
