I am requesting a couch and balance ball chairs to add to my growing collection of flexible seating in my classroom. Over the past few years, I have allowed my students to leave their desks and choose comfortable spaces to learn and collaborate. We are also a technology pilot classroom. Every student has their own Chromebook, which is used throughout the day instead of the traditional paper and pencil assignments. Last year I noticed that students barely used their desks, so this year I am using the space in my classroom to offer other seating options. My classroom is a reflection of how students learn today. Allowing choice in seating is one way to differentiate for the wide variety of learners in my classroom. The various learning spaces in my classroom foster collaboration and increase engagement.
