Help me give my students seating options in the classroom so they can be comfortable during the learning they are doing as scholars when we have up to 50 kids in the classroom.
My school, located in Wisconsin, is filled with diverse learners! My students try to stay engaged in learning educational lessons in meaningful ways despite the daily struggles they have to face outside the walls of the school building. The students are eager to learn about the world around them and it is my responsibility to help them develop and enjoy a lifelong love of learning.
My students are energetic, enthusiastic learners who come to school ready to learn each day!
My students come from a variety of backgrounds both culturally and economically. Over one hundred children take food bags home for the weekend and we serve free breakfast daily to all children in the building. We are a high poverty school trying to make an impact in the lives of these children and let them know they always have someone that loves them and are there for them no matter what. I am proud to call myself the teacher of such incredible students.
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.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The footstool ottomans allow for seating and additional storage for comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more! There are times of the day I have up to 50 students in the room and these options will help offer options for all these scholars.
