Kindergartners are young learners and need to move often. Its hard for them to sit for long, especially at their tables. They also are learning to be independent, which I want to encourage by offering seating choices. Choices such as soft spots, donut chairs, and camping chairs allow kindergartners comfy spaces to learn. A variety of places to learn, read and work allows them to make a choice on how and where they learn best. This also allows them to be comfortable at school, instead of sitting at a desk for 6 hours a day. Not only are seating choices important for independence and comfort while learning, they are also exciting and the students will be eager to choose their spot and get to work. There is a large portion of our day where they are practicing their reading and writing skills on their own while I work with reading groups. This is called Daily 5; and when they will use flexible seating the most, although they will also be encouraged during other times, such as independent work time, math time, morning work time, and whenever else they want to work away from their table to be successful.
