My Students

I am a second grade teacher seeking resources to provide my students with equal opportunities to be successful in their education. My classroom consists of diverse and extraordinary scholars! Most of my students are English Language Learners who come from a low socio-economic background. Many of my students often face challenges in and out of school. Some with academics, others with health issues. But despite these challenges they strive to learn, be kind, and succeed in all that they do!

My Project

I want to create a differentiated and comfortable learning environment for my students by providing them with different choices in seating especially during Readers Workshop. Traditionally students remain seated at their desks and chairs. That is definitely not fun nor comfortable. Flexible seating allows students to move around, sit, stand, bounce and/or recline and yet be engaged in their learning.

I am requesting a variety of seating options for my students to look forward to reading in different settings throughout the week.

The mats will be used during collaborative groups of 4-5 students both inside and outside the classroom (in our beautiful garden!). The beach chairs are perfect to set up anywhere in the classroom and it easy to fold up for storage. The balance balls will be accessible to all students. Not only will they be comfortable but they will be practicing good posture as well.

By providing this learning environment I hope to increase students focus, engagement, motivation, and excitement for learning all while being comfortable and in a seat of their choice. I thank you in advance for supporting to make this flexible seating arrangement possible. Thank you
