Picture a group of kids who are growing up in homeless, transitional, or semi-permanent housing. That's my room. As one of the few states that guarantee family housing, our shelters are overflowing. The state has purchased temporary apartment housing near our school, and well over half of our population is in our area for a short, undetermined amount of time. With one hundred percent of our student body receiving free breakfast, lunch, and snack, school is their safe place, and for many of our student body, it is their safe haven.
Despite obstacles that would be too much for many adults, they remain bright, funny, and fun-loving, and they really enjoy the safety and security that school brings.
Our school not only keeps the kids safe, but it's a place where learning comes alive and is so much fun!
There have been many studies that have shown the effects that flexible seating has on learning in the classroom. As I made the shift to 2nd grade, I knew the needs of the students would vary and the room itself would require some new options for working collaboratively.
Just placing a few choices in my classroom gives them more options, and the opportunity to move will increase their focus and willingness to work.
My classroom supports a diverse and beautiful group of students with a wide range of learning needs; offering flexible seating means being able to support each student how they learn best.
I know that adding these new options: two more floor seats and a bench for family meetings will drastically change the shape of our classroom community and how we learn!
