My students come from a low income, high-poverty part of the city where they need opportunities to succeed. Young children need to start their learning journey early.
I teach at a Title I school in Virginia where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
For some of my students, this is their first school experience, and I want to make it a great one. They really enjoy school and learning. As little learners, they also love to read, write, and grow.
My little learners love school and having choices. Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.
Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom.
It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. Small children can become fidgety when they sit too long. By having multiple choices as to where they sit and what they use, whether it is a pillow, a chair, a stool, or on the floor with a wooden lap desk, it helps little learners feel more comfortable. It also, provides them voice and choice in their learning day.
