My classroom community has 24 vibrant 3rd graders who are leaders, artists, scientists, mathematicians, readers, and so much more. Our school is in a suburban community, full of diversity. My students love to sing and dance, create art projects and especially have group discussions for just about everything.
Our room is not my classroom, it is OUR classroom.
It's like a second home for my students, and I want them to feel comfortable and loved at all times.
My students love to learn new material, and they are so eager to try new things. This group of students has already changed my life for the better.
The flexible seating such as wobble stools and balance balls options will benefit my students by giving them the power of choice. Flexible seating will allow my students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed, which increases the comfort level in the classroom. When a student is uncomfortable, it causes them to be distracted and unproductive!
Flexible seating not only has academic benefits, it also makes learning fun!
Being able to grab a wobble stool to work on vocabulary words with a partner is sure to up the engagement! The comfortable seating also creates a more home-like feel, which creates a fantastic classroom community of learners!
