This Kindergarten classroom at a Title I school represents a diverse group of students with differing abilities, languages, needs, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and identities. Each student holds a unique set of passions yet they all share a love for learning and one another.
They challenge and invigorate my teaching practice everyday to meet the needs of all my students while making learning exciting and relevant to each individual.
It is important to me that I create a sense of community and belonging in my classroom. These students constantly inspire me with their willingness to practice empathy and lend a hand. They look out for one another and that makes my job so special!
My classroom is full of wiggly, active learners. However, at the moment the seating options available are uniform across the classroom and accessible to a specific type of learner. Students who learn best with options to move around are limited when doing seated activities, making learning often frustrating and inaccessible.
We are requesting wobble chairs and soft seats.
By donating to this project, you will be ensuring that our active students have options that support engagement and maintain increased focus on learning tasks in a way that works for the individual. With active seating options, students will better be able to focus on tasks without feeling distracted by the need to move. I want to support students in knowing that different ways of learning is important and OK. I will use these wobble chairs and cushions to ensure each learner gets what they need to be excited and eager to grow their brain!
