School: Beacon Tree
After more than 20 years of teaching, I have learned that it is important to teach to each individual child. To accomplish this, many things have to be considered. Each child has a set of different strengths and weaknesses as well as learning styles. I believe that flexible seating would be a great way to reach different students in a comfortable, working environment. There are many benefits to flexible seating, such as allowing students to move around the classroom to work independently or with peers. With this grant, I will be purchasing items such as student cushions, stack stools, comfy floor seats, mini child sized chairs, balance ball seats, wobble chairs, carpet circles/squares, color bins to organize station supplies, and materials for stations such as educational games, and assorted writing tools to make learning fun!
