Every student that enters my room is important. I strive to make sure that every single one of them knows they are valued, feel important, and know they are heard. Each year I get the opportunity to welcome 22-25 unique learners every single day. For some of my kiddos I'm the first person they see and I love the fact that I get to be a welcoming home to them!
With the uniqueness of every child comes the differences of how they learn.
These differences are special and it’s my job to help them embrace heir differences and help them to be successful!
Flexible seating gives our classroom a more collaborative environment. This will help teach students how to work respectfully with others, resolve conflicts, and speak kindly to one another. It also gives a safe space for my students to be coached and practice how to interact successfully with others around them. I love giving children choices and this type of environment gives them a chance to move around freely, sit where they are comfortable, and learn in a space that best fits their learning needs.
This change to the learning environment is a step toward teaching our students about teamwork, collaboration, and understanding that each of us learns differently!
