It is no secret that children learn by moving around and exploring their surroundings. We see this all of the time in babies crawling. However, the school system stifles this instinct by confining our children to rows of desks and seats. We tell our students to "sit down, be still, don't tap on the desk", hindering them from being their creative selves. My goal is to do a complete rehaul on seating in my classroom. I have already purchased comfy chairs, a few yoga balls and milk crate seats. However, I need your help to close the gap. Students will be able to sit on yoga ball chairs and use bouncy bands so that they can be comfortable while learning. Flex seating will restore some of that freedom that our traditional classroom has taken away. In a society that has an increase in attention disorders, studies show that flex seating gives kids an outlet for their fidgeting.
