Help me give my students the flexible seating options that allow them to learn best! The "Surf Portable Lap Desk" can be used with their Chromebooks (digital-schoolwork) and paper-schoolwork anywhere in the classroom or outside!
I have an energetic group of learners who love to collaborate and work together! Of my 33 students, 21 are boys. These 4th graders are building communication and team work skills by being allowed flexible seating, practicing working with different people with different skill sets, and learning successful ways to talk to each other. I love how my students work together in different partnership, groups, alone, and with me.
Their engaging energy and enthusiasm to discuss everything presented to them creates a working buzz in my room.
Each child in my room adds to our community of learners - artists, tech enthusiasts, book worms, creative writers, athletes, musicians, scientists, mathematicians, and problem solvers.
I am excited to have this enthusiastic bunch of learners, and I know that I'll get to learn so much from them this year!
Flexible seating allows students to be in charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent, partner, and small group work times, they get to choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or lying on the floor with a clipboard. Making sure my 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 work 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 work.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The portable lap desks are perfect for indoor, outdoor, hallway, under counters, and on the rug. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to move out of their desk. The stacking stools are colorful, 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 I hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
