I work in a school where absenteeism and low test scores are what we need to work with. I want to create a classroom where my kids want to be every day.
My classroom looks like a beehive.
In a beehive there are different jobs for each bee. One is tending to the queen...that’s me conducting teacher time. Others are worker bees that have two independent jobs which are different from each other. Finally I have a group working with technology in the hive. Everyone is working but I’m letting them work independently and with me for guidance.
I make sure my kids have books as well as online choices during reading. The addition of the Scholastic Storyworks magazine during their SSR time will be a well-loved addition. Since the kids also love partner reading I think this subscription would fit the bill. During Guided Reading the students have a round of SSR or partner reading every day so this magazine will be well loved and used.
I have some flexible seating in my classroom but need additional choices.
I have pillows for the floor, rocker scoop chairs, as well as a place for standing or sitting at a regular desk. The addition of the Flex-Space Wobble Chairs will make my seating choices complete. My kids tend to rock on the stools which isn’t good for them or my stools. Wobble Chairs will be a perfect substitution.
