This project is inspired by my students. We don't all learn the same way, so I can't expect my all my students to work sitting at their desks. This project will allow me to help my students choose how they will sit while they complete their work! Giving students the choice of seating in the classroom is a big part of their success. These seating options will help my students stay active while they are working. The Kids Kore Wobble chairs, Yoga Balls, and Balance Seat Cushions will allow the students to build their core strength, use correct posture, and get the wiggles out all while working and learning. The yoga mats will give students the choice to work laying down on their stomach and kick their legs while they are working. Having all of these options of flexible seating in the classroom would have a huge impact on my students! It really is doing what is best for them, and giving them the chance to move and be active all while learning in the classroom!
