Help me give my students wobble chairs, wobble cushions, a comfy chair, comfy pillows, and big beanbag seats for fun and engaging ways of learning in our classroom!
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. My sweet students live in a small town with not many opportunities for outside learning within our community. We have to go outside of our town to explore learning. Providing opportunities within my classroom every day is my number one goal! I try each and every day to bring imagination and the outside world to our little classroom! Truly, they are my inspiration! Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
When students walk into a classroom, they want to feel loved and be comfortable in that classroom. By offering different seating options, students are more excited to learn throughout the day! 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. I have chosen a variety of different seating such as wobbly seats ideal for those who like to wiggle and wobble while they work, each super-safe stool has a rounded base that allows kids a little movement while they sit—without tipping over! I also think having soft seats for the floor and bean bag seat invite students, who need that sense of comfort, feel that in the classroom. When we have Friday Reading Time, students will be able to curl up in a good book and take their brains to different places just by using our comfortable bean bags! For students who prefer to lay in the floor, the big pillows can help make that a little more comfortable and fun. 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.
