My students need flexibility in our classroom. They need to be able to move as needed to enhance their learning!
As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school with many single parent families, my students come to me with differing abilities and needs. They face many challenges both in and out of the classroom.
I want the classroom environment and experiences to inspire my students to be the best they can be.
Just imagine if you had to stay in the same spot daily! Students spend 7 hours in the classroom daily so need many options to stay stimulated.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
