I work in a highly energetic fifth grade classroom. All of my students require tailored instruction to meet their individual needs. I work hard to meet those needs and to create a love of lifelong learning! Research has shown that physical activity is correlated with higher academic performance and improved behavior. I would like to give all of my wonderful children the opportunity to thrive in that type of atmosphere. As it is now, my students have nowhere but the hard floor or rigid, uncomfortable desk chairs to sit in.
I want to provide my students with a classroom environment that feels more like home.
Offering changes in position and movement opportunities throughout the day gives children a much needed burst of activity. A multi-sensory approach to learning contributes to better learning outcomes, focus, less restlessness, and improves participation and behavior. By encouraging my students to sit where they like; I will provide them with tools to help them succeed. My goal is to offer students a comfortable spot to sit and still be able to meet their learning targets.
Not being restricted to a desk and chair allows for flexibility both in body and mind fostering a more dynamic learning environment.
Flex-Space Collaborative Floor Work Space is the perfect addition to my classroom. It not only provides students with comfortable seats,but it also provides the perfect setting for students to work together.
