My students come into class full of energy and excitement every day, ready to learn, and determined to do their very best. We believe in each other and work hard to encourage our uniqueness. Our Morning announcement always end with "We Believe in YOU"
My students know that they are in charge of their learning.
They like to have choice and thrive on the ability to take responsibility for their own learning. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their amazing potential to grow socially and academically. I may not be able to be with them every minute of the day, however, I can make every second of the time they are with me a positive experience, where they learn how to make positive choices and take control of their amazing life. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
I have jumped head first into the adventure of flexible seating in my classroom over the last few years.
I have worked hard to help my students find the "best place for them to sit" but what happens if sitting to work is NOT how a students learns best??
Well...here is where a standing desk comes in to play. Maybe standing is what a student needs to be successful with this 2-person standing desk I will be able to give my students an opportunity to choose what is best for them. Do they work best sitting at a table, laying on the floor, or standing at a desk. The answers lies within the hearts and minds of each of the students who walk into my classroom each year.
