Take a peek at our room. It is a place where we learn, have fun and enjoy each others company. You might notice all the frogs. It started out very simple and small…Mrs. Short and I started just sending them each other when we taught in different school. Now they are everywhere!!
Again this year-we are trying non-permanent flexible seating. The tables seat 10 students with exercise balls. The remaining students have the choice of sitting on the carpet with a lap desk, sitting at the low green table, at the high top table, on the new individual chairs with clip boards or on the lowered table with pillows. Students have a home base for their folders, books and journals. We all share school supplies and store them in baskets on the tables.
Another unique aspect of our class- The exercise balls we sit on instead of chairs. We established rules for using these cool seats and as long as everyone follows the rules students are free to sit on a ball instead of a chair.
