As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school my students are faced with many challenges every day. They are active, full of wonderings and eager to learn. They love to read and write, and enjoy hands-on learning experiences that make their learning more meaningful.
I enjoy watching my students grow socially, emotionally and academically every day.
I teach with a growth mindset and talk with my students about perseverance and determination. In my classroom, mistakes are expected and we learn from them.
Not all students can focus, be engaged and learn the same way. Giving children the opportunity to choose a work space that will benefit them is important. Flexible seating allows students the opportunity to decide where to sit. Some students may choose to sit on a wobble seat at a table to help them focus, whether it is during a whole class lesson, or when they are working in small groups or on an individual project. Others find it more comfortable to sit on the rug and use a lap desk while they write or use a laptop. Other need more movement and find that using a bouncy seat helps them focus.
Using a variety of seating options will allow my students the ability to focus more and be engaged, whether they work together in partners, small groups, or individually.
