My class consists of 19 very diverse, unique, and amazing students. Each student brings their own strengths and talents to our classroom, which provides us with great conversations!
Of these 19 students, 4 our English Learners, 5 receive special education, and 1 receives speech and language.
Due to having many different teachers pushing in to support students, as well as students leaving for extra support, my class has learned to respect every students' differences and have learned to help one another achieve greatest each day!
We are fortunate enough to stay together for two years, as I will be looping with my class to 3rd grade and we are excited to continue to grow from one another!
Due to the diverse needs of our classroom, we have been trying to implement different seating alternatives to give us better opportunities to wiggle while still learning!
Though my students try their absolute best to always come to school ready to learn, their home lives sometimes get in the way of their basic needs.
Having alternate seating allows them to chose what will work best for them to learn, based on their individual needs that day.
This particular seating option will allow my students to wobble or rock, which will increase oxygen flow to their brains, blood flow, and core strength.
