My students attend a Title I school in Jersey City. They have low parental support and do not come to school with the basic supplies needed to succeed.They receive free breakfast and lunch each day. They deal with many challenges before their school day even begins, and still come into the classroom with a smile on their face. As high-risk students, they rely on the comfortable classroom environment we create to feel secure while they learn and grow.
I love how they encourage each other to learn, so that they may reach their full potential.
They are eager to learn and willing to forget about their hardships to better themselves. Our goal is to create a classroom of life-long learners.
Meeting students needs: Beyond allowing students to choose their seat, flexible classroom seating allows students to sit or stand in a way that best suits their body.
Flexible seating allows students to physically become more comfortable while they are learning.
Flexible classrooms give students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them, and help them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking.
The wobble chairs allow students to safely exercise their legs, backs, and abdominal muscles without disturbing the rest of the class. The disco cushion is used on the floor for balance training and strengthening.
