My students are a caring group. They want to help each other and learn to their best potential. They come for low income families and even though they are fourth graders they are below level.
My students each have a different comfort zone and learning style.
Since it is the beginning of the school year we are getting to know each other. We are working together to create a classroom where student feel safe to learn and ask questions. I want to make my room a place they feel comfortable, safe and excited to learn.
My students are kids. They want to learn but have a hard time just like adults sitting in one location or position. They want to sit or stand while working.
My students need to be comfortable to learn their at their best.
I have students who like to stand to work. They continue working but while standing over their desk. The folding table tops will make it easier for them to stand and work so they are not leaning over their desks. These are 9 - 11 year old students and sitting on the floor on cushions to work is comfortable and fun for them.
Flexible seating for my students will make a happy, comfortable learning environment for them.
