Help me give my students the flexible seating that they need to flourish rather than just using chairs.
How can I possible tell you about what makes my students, my little ones, my whole world so special in just a few words? When you ask my little scholars how many children I have, they will tell you 22 without hesitation. They know I will try my hardest to move mountains for them, but I can't always do it myself- which is how I found myself here.
My 1st graders need a space where they can let their creativity flow and explore the world around them because they deserve it.
We are a team in my room and by using our small space more effectively, we can get so much more out of each and every day. We start and end our day with high-fives, hugs, and words of encouragement. My class is filled with a loving group of 6-year-olds that are grateful, encouraging, welcoming, and full of curiosity that will benefit so much from this project.
The future of education is not telling students how to learn, but rather giving them the tools they need to explore learning in their own way. Having my students explore the world of flexible seating within my classroom will give them the power of choice for the physical space of their classroom. We currently have some flexible seating in our library and my kids thrive off of it. The power of flexible, comfortable seating will also continue to make our classroom community to build through creative collaboration. They will share their tools and supplies more efficiently while working in small groups throughout the day.
With flexible seating, my classroom environment will be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
Providing my 22 first graders with the choice and mobility they need with their physical space will help them to stay focused on their tasks while working with their peers. When students are uncomfortable, they are easily distracted. With comfortable seating such as the wobble chairs, recliner chairs, and floor cushions, my little ones will stay calm, focused, and productive. I will then use the foam mats to fill in the empty spaces so students can utilize every inch of the room to sit around and gather together. These will also help to make our learning fun, which means I will have a relaxed, engaged group of students that are ready to take on the world!
