Help me give my students flexible seating options to enhance their learning overall.
Funny, loving, silly, inquisitive and hardworking are just a few words that describe my third graders. I work with many different students; however, many of my students receive gifted and talented education services.
Many of the students at my school are struggling and living below the poverty line.
For this reason, they do not have the means to buy supplies. My students attend a Title I school where nearly all of them receive free food; almost all the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Some of my student receive take home food for the weekends. Also, these students receive free coats and shoes. I will never forget when one of my students received their free coat and said, "I am so happy because now I will be warm." Despite these difficulties my students overcome everyday, they work hard in academics and character. They work on building character and values while learning. They are truly an amazing group!
Flexible seating is a individualized approach to arranging the classroom environment which allows students to have multiple options and opportunities for seating. Flexible seating gives my students a choice in where they can learn and work, and puts a positive and personal emphasis on how my students' learning takes place.
I have found that giving my students a choice in where they can work helps to foster engagement and motivation, and ensures that the entire learning process is meaningful and unique.
The implementation of flexible seating would allow for endless opportunities for learning, growth, and achievement for all students.
Ultimately, flexible seating is a positive educational tool that allows for meaningful movement, choice, comfort, collaboration, and community; these factors involved in flexible seating help to meet the needs of all students and benefit the overall educational process.
