My students are a group of very active First graders. They walk into the classroom every day ready to learn, full of life, and excited to see what is in store for them.
I have a very diverse class in which all students come from very different backgrounds.
No two of my students are the same; they are all unique in their own ways.
I am a teacher in a Title I school where my students are faced with many challenges, both inside and outside of the classroom. For some of them, school is their best opportunity to feel safe, secure, and given unconditional love. It is my job to allow them the opportunity to learn without focusing on those challenges they may face as well as give them a sense of family.
In my classroom, I have one kidney shaped teacher table. This table is used for small group instruction during guided math and guided reading. By having stools at this table, it would encourage my students to use correct posture, instead of slouching, which will help them focus more on the assigned tasks.
With these stools, they would maximize space in the classroom by being able to slide under the table easier than other chairs.
This would also make for safer and quicker transitions during class. These stools will help my students feel comfortable, which means they will learn better and are able to be active learners, which will give them a better experience in my classroom.
