Students walk into our classroom knowing that we are a family. Everyone is appreciated, safe and loved. Students are excited for the opportunity to be the best student that they can be. The diversity in our classroom provides a unique learning environment where we are learning from each other academically and socially.
The classroom is a dynamic and diverse group of students who come from many different cultures to make our classroom family an exciting one to be a part of.
Their energy for learning is contagious and I feel lucky to be their teacher.
This year I embraced the scary adventure of flexible seating with my students. I was so nervous about how this would change the community, structure and routine of my day. I am pleased to say that it has been the most amazing change I have made in my classroom.
This group of students advocates, communicates, collaborates and supports each other more than any group of students I have ever taught: all thanks to the flexible seating in our room.
They work to find the best seat and group of students to work with. They are encouraged to make changes to their seating if it no longer meets their needs and this has taught them some amazing life skills.
Our classroom is growing and because of that we are out of seat options and we are needing some more. I am hoping that adding a few more great options will continue to develop these amazing life skills with my students.
Ensuring that each student has a great seat will enhance both their social/emotional development and the success of their learning. Not all students learn best sitting in a chair and this seating would allow them to find how they learn best and embrace it!
