My students need 2 wobbly stools to sit on as a form of seating in my classroom.
Students come to me with a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn mathematics, but when their learning environment is not adequate to meet their needs it becomes a distraction and a learning disadvantage. By the end of third grade, students are expected to master multiplication and division facts to 100, solve word problems with all operations, and understand many concepts related to fractions. One of the biggest challenges that I face is getting students to meet grade level expectations without the proper supplies to meet their learning needs.
My students are all individuals from different backgrounds and with different types of learning abilities.
Let me introduce you to my classroom. I am a third grade math teacher in a low income school. I teach three math periods throughout the day with ninety minute blocks and seventy students transitioning in and out of my classroom. Some of my students are English Language Learners, special education students, and highly capable and gifted students. Student ability levels range anywhere from intensive, strategic, and benchmark. Approximately 48 percent of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
Expecting students to sit still in a chair for a ninety-minute block is a big expectation especially for eight and nine year olds. This is something that students are expected to do on a daily basis. Something as simple as sitting on a chair becomes an enormous task for students that are already at a disadvantage in their educational career. Students are all expected to meet grade level expectations, no matter what level they were at in the beginning of third grade. It is up to me, their math teacher to meet every single students’ needs.
I would like more seating options available to my students, especially students who constantly need to be moving while they learn.
Many students will benefit from being able to constantly move while at their desk. The two requested wobbly stool chairs will help my students stay focused and engaged during my class for a longer period of time.
