Mrs. Rader from Allen Park MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a variety of places to sit and wiggle around while they are learning in small and large groups.
My 1st graders are a diverse group of high energetic learners. They are full of excitement when they come to me in the morning, and are always looking for new things to learn and create. As their teacher, my job is to make sure that I am changing my teaching styles and classroom to meet their ever-changing needs. I work really hard to make sure that our classroom is a safe, engaging place to learn and grow. I am starting to change the set up of our classroom to better serve them. I do not do well myself sitting in one spot all day, and I know 6 and 7 year old bodies do not, either.
It is so important to create an environment were diverse learners can be successful.
Having a classroom that uses flexible seating will encourage my students who have sensory sensitivities, ADHD, and other needs a chance to be more productive.
Classrooms today look different than they did a few years ago, because the curriculum and students are changing. My first graders collaborate together in small and large groups. Students that have sensory struggles will love being able to wobble on the wobble chairs while working, and the balance balls will allow them to sit and move while working. The carpet spots will also give them choices on where to sit on the carpet.
When students make choices, they are more willing to work!
Empowering students with a choice in where they learn and work will increase their confidence and promote success for all learners!
