Recent research and classroom teachers are agreeing that offering students alternatives to sitting in a desk chair are improving student's creativity, attentiveness and participation in class. We already know students don't all THINK the same, so, why should we expect them to all SIT the same. I see it all the time, each year I have students that fidget in their chairs. Some sit with a leg under them, some prefer to stand, some rock back and forth or lean back dangerously balancing on two legs. I have been using yoga balls as chairs for the last month and I see a HUGE improvement in my students. They are more relaxed, focused and overall they are being better students! Who would've thought something as simple as how a student is sitting could have so much effect on their success in class? I am hoping to purchase stools, beanbag chairs, pillows and inflatables to have even more seating options in the classroom.
