Flexible Seating...Sit, Kneel, Rock or Stand - Just Learn
Flexible Seating...Sit, Kneel, Rock or Stand - Just Learn! Room 103 has made the focus of this year's class the children and lots of options! Thanks to classroom donations, purchases and a grant from the Burlington Education Foundation, students have many options and lots of control in what tools they need to be the best students they can be.
Our classroom full of empowered learners love the freedom and choices! Students are motivated and develop a sense of independence when they are in control. Our daily message is, "It is your job to be the best student you can be. Be sure to select the best tool and seating option to help you to be your best."
Visit our room and you will see students in bucket rockers, wooden slatted Howda-hug and Backjack chairs. We have cube chairs, wedges and bumpy cushions.
We sit in chair, on mats and on bumpy cushions when we work!
We have smaller bean bag like chairs and a bigger one!
|Sometimes students even enjoy sharing a seat!|
Our seating options are great for whole group time, individual work time and for times when we work with partners!
Having so many options would not be possible without the support of the community. This project is funded by a grant from the Burlington Education Foundation. "The BEF's mission is to channel donations from businesses and individuals to provide Burlington educators with an additional source of funding for creative and innovative curriculum enrichment programs.
Be sure to visit the Burlington Education Foundation website for further information about the organization and how community members can get involved and support the BEF. See information about the fall raffle and annual trivia event scheduled for March, 2018.
