I am a teacher in a Title 1, low-income school. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want my Fabulous Firsties to come into our room and feel safe and comfortable, Even though the students in my classroom come from very diverse backgrounds they all have 1 thing in common...their love of learning! Each day my Fabulous Firsties arrive and are eager to get started with our day! They have a thirst for learning and just want to excel. They teach me daily about life just as much as I teach them.
As education moves towards flexible seating, I would like to offer this option in my class. I have 27 very active first graders, and giving them the opportunity to not only select their tables, but the seats will maximize their learning. By providing 3 30x30 square tables from Lakeshore that allow for smaller group size, my students will be able to select partners to work collaboratively with. They will be active participants in decision making, social skills, and ultimately their own learning. They will have more options to work with providing such choices will give each child the opportunity to wiggle, giggle, and most importantly, learn!
