TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a variety of seating choices for independent reading time.
I teach 22 amazing 3rd graders! They come from a variety of different backgrounds but many of them come from low-income homes and lack the experiences that help them be successful in school.
One thing all my students desire is to learn and be successful.
For some of my students learning comes easily, but for others, they have many obstacles to overcome. For example; learning disabilities, language barriers, behavior plans, and poverty are just a few. I know my students are going to be world changers one day given the right opportunities!
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and choose what works best for them. Currently during reading students are choosing to sit in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables, or sitting or laying on the floor. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more reading completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to read.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor pillows will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
