My students are many things. They are boys and girls. They are growing in personality, wit, and intelligence. They are sponges that soak up every word I say and make sure to remind me of all of those words as well.
The 5th-grade students are rich and full of cultural diversity representing the countries of Burma, the United States, Mexico, Malaysia, Liberia, and the United Arab Emirates through the use of 10 different spoken languages, as well as American Sign Language.
My students are diverse. They have experienced things I could never imagine, but most importantly they are kids. They are nine, ten, or eleven years old and they love to move, talk, smile, play, and pretend.
This project will allow me to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for my students! I read somewhere that you should make your classroom a place where you would like to learn. So I thought about it and came up in my head where 5th grade me would have liked to learn. Somewhere cozy, comfy, and safe. Which lead me to this project.
Flexible seating is a big trend right now, and I want to take that up a notch.
I want the students to feel safe when they come in to the room. I want it to be a place of learning and relaxation. I want them to want to be here. I believe this will allow for that. The students will be in an environment that promotes learning! Different areas of the room will be dedicated to different types of learning and learners.
This will benefit the students in many ways. I am excited to implement a true flexible seating environment in my classroom!
