Flexible seating enables students to take charge of their learning by making choices that work best for them. In the classroom, they have the opportunity to choose a location that best fits their mood and needs for the day. At the moment, my students have a few desk laps that they can use to sit on the carpet and be closer to the screen, and some pillows. However, we are limited on flexible seating arrangements for over half of my students. I want to allow all of them to move around and pick a different location including: sitting at different tables, laying on the floor or the carpet. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. In the past, I have seen that when students are given the opportunity to move around and learn in different settings, they almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged and than when they have assigned seats.
