Help me give my students the opportunity of choice to enable them to become better learners.
I have been teaching for 22 years and I can definitely say I am super excited about my new adventure. My grade level has decided to implement flexible seating next year. What a wonderful opportunity for my children. This is going to give them flexibility and ownership of where they want to sit and learn.
My students have always been hard-working, motivated, enthusiastic learners.
They attend a school that is 100% free and reduced meals. This means most of my students come from families that struggle financially, but this certainly does not hinder their desire to learn. I would love to be able to give them the feeling of empowerment over their learning environment.
I have read many articles about flexible seating and hope that this will be an innovative way to motivate my students to do their best. They have already learned to adapt to the uncomfortable environment of a typical classroom. I can only imagine what they can achieve in a classroom that gives them the opportunity to choose the best possible way for them to learn.
Flexible seating will allow my students to make the best choice for their learning. I believe that their behaviors will also improve due to the opportunities given to them to make choices in their classroom environment.
Currently my students have the opportunity to sit in various places in my classroom.
They have different tables with different heights and a couple of different options for seating. I am asking for a few more seating options so that my students have more choices. The wobble chairs will be ideal for those students that require a little more movement during class instruction. The stadium seats will be used with my low table. These stadium seats will also be able to be moved to different areas of the classroom. I am also asking for book bins so my students can store classroom materials in them since they no longer have desks.
I have implemented flexible seating during summer school with much success. I believe with more seating options, it will only make learning more successful!
