Mrs. Meyers from Cedar Rapids IA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need to create a positive learning environment where seating options allow learning and engagement to take place. The Active Classroom Desk Seating will allow students to move and learn at the same time.
Our classroom is overflowing with intelligent, respectful, and caring students. As a teacher, I desire to foster learning. Tailoring our classroom-learning environment to accommodate all students’ needs will help with engagement.
John Hattie phrase: “A positive, caring, respectful environment is a prior condition to learning.”
My students look beyond the differences and embrace their peers to create a 'Class Family'. As a teacher, I desire to create a positive learning environment where seating options allow learning and engagement to take place.
Redesigning the structure of the classroom and implementing flexible seating encourages students and I to shift our mindset about the classroom-teaching environment. The classroom-teaching environment will transform from assigned seating into a classroom environment that is student-centered. The theory of multiply intelligence refers to every student learns differently. As their teacher, I want to empower each student to choose which seat in our classroom best meets their learning styles. Student-centered flexible seating classroom encourages; multiply intelligence, self-empowerment, engagement, critical thinkers, problem solvers, communicators, and motivation to learn. Students now have a variety of seating options throughout the day. The students do not have to endure sitting on a chair at a desk while they learn. Desks are still an option for those who prefer them, but they are unassigned. Our seating options include stools, carpets, bungee chairs, floor pillows, ball chairs, beanbags chair, and students may even work at tall standing desks. Students will have their own cubby to store their materials such as notebooks, binders, and pencil boxes. I am looking forward to tailoring our classroom-learning environment to meet your child’s needs. Thank you for your support and please let me know if you have any questions.
