My students need flexible seating options that allow them to wiggle while remaining focused and engaged throughout the day!
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, many of my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, caring, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and all students receive a free breakfast and most students a free/reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
With multiple flexible seating options, my students will be able to work out their wiggles while also completing academic tasks. The seating options being requested are light and easily moved from table to desk and also allow students to collaborate in small groups.
While collaborating with their peers and working together on academic tasks, students will be able to build motor skills through balancing and coordination that many young students are still developing.
Flexible seating allows students to engage in learning in an exciting way that will create an environment where soft skills are developed and practiced in a fun way!
In literature circles and book chats, students will be able to gather their stability balls to relocate into groups throughout the classroom. At my guided reading, writing, and math table students will be able to use bouncy bands at the foot of their seats to help with the wiggles that come about from intense instruction.
