My students need clipboards, stools, laptop desks, cushions, exercise balls, and a table as flexible seating options to feel comfortable and safe in the classroom!
Hello! I am going to start next fall as first year teacher in a fourth grade classroom. My future students will be coming together from two different k-3 schools in the area. Many of my students come from low-income households.
It is my belief that students will do and feel their best in a comfortable and safe environment!
Many of these kids need to move around and work in different ways. Flexible seating can allow them to be in a more comfortable space within the classroom!
As a first year teacher I have a lot of big ideas but limited funds. It is my dream to have a classroom environment that includes flexible seating. Flexible seating creates a welcoming atmosphere and allows students the opportunity to make a choice for where they want to work. I have witnessed students become more motivated and engaged when they are comfortable while working.
Student choice is one of the most engaging elements of an effective classroom.
The items that I have chosen are going to be beneficial for my classroom environment. Students will be able to grab a clipboard or a lap desk and find a spot around the room where they can work effectively. The wobble stools are great for students who struggle with sitting still and can be used at desks, during small groups, or even as additional seating during carpet time. The yoga balls are also wonderful for students who need to move. The stability cushions will give students who need to wiggle a closer to the floor option. The cushions can also be used in traditional chairs as needed.
It is my hope that my future students will feel comfortable in the classroom and that, by having a fun and inviting environment, students will be excited to come to class!
