Adults do not like to sit on hard chairs all day long, so these students should not either. They need to wiggle, engage their core, and even lay down to write and work. I know I can't get lost in a good book unless I'm physically comfortable. I would like to provide my class different forms of seating like soft seats, bean bag chairs and yoga mats to lie on instead of just hard plastic chairs they sit on much of the day. Research shows that students can benefit from burning more calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increased motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength and overall posture by incorporating flexible seating choice in the classroom. I hope to see higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior. The alternative seating options will allow for more flexibility for all students and help special need students feel more comfortable in the classroom.
