Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students would benefit from flexible seating. It would help with focus and provide another opportunity for choice. This includes wobble stools, rolling chairs, clip boards, stability balls, bungee chairs, and stools.
My first graders are an unique, eager, and determined group of students.
They are driven by project based, hands-on learning activities and lessons. They thrive in an environment that gets them up and moving and have where they can be in control of their learning.
In my classroom of 26 students, you will find various learning levels and learning styles which require different teach methods. I do my best to empower my students with choice in all that they do. Flexible seating will be another wonderful opportunity for choice in their day do my best to create an environment for my students that is fun, safe, and engaging. We have a busy day filled with small group, whole group, and individual instruction. First graders are active and need to wiggle. One of my coworkers began flexible seating with her class and found that it helped some of her students focus and complete tasks that they weren't able to before.
I want to embrace their energy and create a classroom that allows for them to have flexible seating where they can best succeed.
The traditional desk and chairs work for some, but not all. I want a classroom where students are excited to learn. Having flexible seating would give them more choice, empowerment and control over their learning.
