I currently teach 18 special third graders. The students have a wide range of needs. Many have dealt with trauma issues in their life. Many struggle to learn and comprehend at their grade level. Many of these students are shy and unwilling to open up to teachers and peers.
My students need love, support and the opportunity to do their best in school.
Some of them like school and others don't. Some of them find learning easy and others don't. I want to provide them with all the necessary skills and opportunities to let their minds grow. I believe in every single child that walks through my door, and I would love to be able to support every single need they have.
I included a few flexible seating options for my students to benefit from in this project. First, students currently sit on desks currently that are attached to their chairs. This does not give them the flexibility to be comfortable while they learn. I would like to provide them with different stools to sit at centers and be connected to the tables in my classroom. Secondly, I would love to provide a few students with wobble cushions. Sitting for long periods of time is just not possible for some of my students. Lastly, I would love to liven up my flexible classroom with a rug for classroom meetings, reading spots, and for day to day work time.
Providing students with options for seating gives them the power of choice, which promotes healthy learning.
Giving my students everything they need is important to me. My students come from rough lives outside of school and I would just love to instill a love of learning back into them by providing them with necessary supplies to help them stay focused.
