In my class I have many students who are very active and need to move around the room often. For these students, sitting at a traditional desk to complete their work is not the best way for them to learn. By getting the alternative seating choices, students will be able to choose where they sit / lay / stand for a lesson therefore giving them control of their learning. Students will be able to choose if they want to sit on the floor and use a lap desk, sit on a stool at a high table, sit on a bean bag chair or lay on the large cushion. I am a strong believer in the mantra "if your body is comfortable, you can learn more." In giving the students a choice about their seating, I am putting the power of learning into their hands.
