My Students

Our students are in a 5th grade inclusion classroom. We have a very diverse classroom with students from all ethnic, race, socioeconomic backgrounds and most importantly, academic levels. This fosters an opportunity for students to learn about all different types of people as well as their cultures, likes/dislikes, religions, hobbies, and more. In our classroom, we encourage friendships and a sense of family.

Our classroom is our second home.

We do our best to make it feel that way for all students as well as their families.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times 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, 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 desk.
