Our students arrive each day at our school with such an eagerness to learn. Most of our students are English language learners looking for amazing opportunities and experiences in the classroom. Combining their eagerness and providing them opportunities can be a challenging task. Our school may be a Title I school where the majority of the families qualify for free breakfast and lunch, but our students have the drive and energy to learn as much as they can. We, as teachers, want to provide as much as we can for them.
As a teacher who has taught several years, I have to stay up to date on different teaching trends. I thought I would give flexible seating a try. It was amazing! The students responded very well to having choices of how to sit.
I am looking to expand on the choices students have on how they can sit and do their work.
I am also asking for a bookshelf for storing small group supplies in the classroom.
I am asking for four large cushions for children to sit on. Have you watched a small child color or write? They like to be low to the ground. I would love to lower one of my tables in order to have cushions for their seating. I would also like to try and incorporate balance balls into the classroom. Finally, I am asking for a short bookcase that does not cover up our low lying windows. This will make it easier to get materials for small group without blocking the natural light in the classroom.
