Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
This year we hae flexible seating in our classroom. Students do not have assigned seats and we frequently move throughout the day. Research shows that learning and movement are inextricably intertwined, so we are incorporating as much movement in our day as possible. Students have the option of standing, sitting on the floor, or sitting on exercise balls. More seating options will be introduced as I'm able to obtain different seating options. Here's a quick look at alternative seating in action (students were taking a test during this time.)
Below is some of our flamingo art. We have a sign saying, "Be a Flamingo in a Flock of Pigeons." We talked about being ourselves even if we are little bit different than our friends. Flamingos are unique and beautiful and so are we!
