My classroom is filled with 24 unique second graders. We are multi-cultural and have seven different home languages, varying economic levels, and a wide continuum of social and academic needs.
But in that diversity, we will come together and find strength!
I am so excited to facilitate and encourage their learning along with a great team of second grade teachers and a wonderful school staff! We believe in our students and our school and that translates into everyone working together to see our students succeed.
We desperately need bookshelves in my classroom to help students manage their materials. Students are thriving in our flexible seating classroom except when it comes to keeping track of their books, folders, papers, pencils, markers, etc. In giving students the ability to select the best place for them to learn (desks, tables, floor, etc), there isn't an assigned "desk" in which they keep their own materials. They need a durable shelf to store, organize and access their books, tools, and classwork.
But this shelf will not only hold their supplies, but it is the right height, depth, and width to become an additional area choice for learning!
Each shelf is tall enough and deep enough to be a standing work area for my students. It is also wide enough to accommodate up to two students working side by side.
I have seen great success in student focus since using flexible seating. Please help me provide a way for them to manage their resources while continuing to allow choices for best learning.
