I teach in an Urban district full of ethnicity. I currently teach 23 active first graders. 5 of these students are English Language Learners from around the globe. These children add to our classroom and teach us what life in other countries is like.
We are working on developing friendships, good work habits, and skills that can be used throughout their lives.
First grade is a great place to build that firm foundation needed for the rest of their education.
Students have no options when it comes to seating in my classroom. Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning. During center time, this will give students a chance to choose a seat that will work for them.
Not all students learn the same way.
Many young children would benefit from choosing a different seat in while working.
The items I have chosen would allow for those that need a "wiggly" seat, a comfortable seat or a rug. The chairs can easily be moved to different tables.
By having a rug and some different seating options, students would be more productive.
