The students who are in my classroom are 5th and 6th graders who are full of energy and ready to learn. They each bring something unique to the classroom. Our students are willing to put forth their best effort.
These students come from a small agriculture-rich community and know what it means to work hard.
Many of the students in my class start their day well before the first bell rings at 8:00 am. Making sure the chores are done before heading off to school is a common characteristic that you will find in our school.
Stackable stools as an accommodation in my classroom will help students feel like they can move without too much distraction. This will allow all students to focus during instruction. Not only will these stools be useful during whole class instruction, but I will also use them for small groups as well. This will allow me to help create smaller group sizes for math and reading.
Flexible seating has been shown to increase focus in children during teacher instruction.
During small groups, students will sit at these stools while receiving additional instruction at a table. When students are finished, they can easily stack their stools and transition to the next class.
