I have a wonderful group of 24 imaginative, loving, fourth graders. Our class moves around constantly and works together cooperatively in many different ways throughout the day. I am a firm believer that each student has a unique learning style, and I'd like to respect that by providing them the freedom to find comfortable spaces around the room to work.
My 4th grade class consists of a hands-on, project-based, whole brain learning classroom that relies on differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all my students.
I have students of all levels from gifted students to high achieving whose comprehension/logistic skills can start at a 4th grade level, but succeed to 12th grade learners. To make sure I meet all of their needs I provide lessons that will not only help them learn, but also inspire to dig deeper. Many of our lessons are collaborative efforts that the students need the capability to move around our classroom.
Flexible Seating has been shown to increase Comprehension, Computation and overall Engagement in students who have a difficult time sitting still. With Flexible Seating, my students will not have to remain stagnate in one area all day. They will have opportunities to move about the room and use the stools, floor chairs and crates to sit and work in groups.
Many of my students are Gifted/High Achievers who have a difficult time sitting still because of hyperactivity or anxiety.
We are also a Project Based Learning Classroom that needs the opportunity to move around and change learning groups regularly.
These stools and floor cushions will help my students be more interactive, relaxed and focused in class.
