Ms. Martina Young from Salinas CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a choice in seating so that they can be comfortable enough to learn.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! We have been learning about the social emotional needs of each student, therefore the flexible seating would serve their needs well. The opportunity to make a choice, and see the positive outcome of that choice will empower my students. Flexible seating gives them a choice each day that enables them succeed. They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
