Over the years I've noticed my students have had a hard time sitting at their desks while reading and writing. They've always asked me if they could sit around the room during independent work time. Seeing the success in my building with flexible seating made me want to provide students the options on where they work best. Research on flexible seating shows that there are many immediate benefits for students, including increase motivation, improved metabolism, better oxygen flow to the brain, and improved posture. I've already began by bringing in pillows, bucket seats, and crates. I noticed they love having those options and would benefit from having more. Even though I have some great seating options, I want to accommodate students who have extra amounts of energy throughout the day. The items that I am requesting through this project are "wobble style" stools and seats, and stability balls. These items will directly benefit my students who crave movement and motion throughout the day.
