I teach 5th grade in a K-5 school in rural Maine. My class size hovers around 18 students; last year, my class had four girls and 13 boys. It was last year that my eyes really opened to the need to have some alternative seating options in my classroom. My class was a very active, mobile class, and frequently they needed the opportunity to take movement breaks. Sitting in a hard plastic chair and working at a desk was not always the most productive choice for my students. Some worked better standing up, sitting on floor mats, and sitting in my teacher chair (the swivel chair in the classroom). As I monitored and reflected on their seating choices, I did observe that the choice and comfort they found with alternative seating options did indeed increase their productivity and willingness to learn.
