My students are ages six and seven. I am privileged to teach first grade in a public school serving 875 students. Because our school is in a community with a growing socioeconomic divide between the poor and wealthy, I strive daily to provide an equitable experience to all students. I have many students who are learning English as a second language.
Many students do not get help with reading or math at home.
Many of my students live in a high poverty area and have few resources at home to help.
My students and I love our flexible seating classroom! My students enjoying being able to choose a seat that helps them produce their best work. My student’s engagement and drive has taken off since I implemented flexible seating in my classroom. One of the biggest challenges with flexible seating is storage.
My students have been asking for better ways to store their supplies.
They have asked for a shelf to hold their book boxes since the one we had broke. They have also requested bigger table tubs to hold supplies such as pencils, scissors, and crayons. I know that having these items would help organize my student’s supplies better. Having more storage for our supplies will make our flexible seating classroom even more enjoyable!
