The school day in my district is from 8:10 to 3:10, during our school day we have our reading, writing and math blocks, along with the other parts of our day. During these core learning blocks the student expectations include being able to sit and focus on the objective of the lesson. Since I teach First Grade and my students are primarily, on average, 6 years old, the expectation to sit and listen, discuss and complete tasks can be extremely difficult for a large portion of the students. Six year old children have a lot of energy and should be moving around, not being asked to sit still for long periods of time! To this end, I would like to incorporate flexible seating in my classroom. Flexible seating gives the students opportunities to choose where they would be most comfortable learning. Flexible seating can include many types of seating options, including small rocking chairs, yoga bouncing balls (with frame), camping chairs, stools, floor pillows, bean bags chairs and wobble cushions. I believe giving children choices of where to sit would increase their productivity and focus, because they would be able to choose a seating choice that might allow them some movement while completing a task. I ask you, reader, what is more comfortable: laying on a soft pillow to read a good book or sitting on the floor? I am requesting this grant so I can invest in flexible seating for my classroom. Currently I have traditional student chairs in my classroom. I believe changing the types of seating options in my classroom will increase student focus during whole group discussions, small group instruction and increase the productivity of students who may benefit from alternate seating as an accommodation in their personal educational plan. Thank you!
