Flexible seating has been proven to increase student focus and productivity. By replacing old-fashioned desks and metal chairs with community tables and yoga balls, my students will be able to be comfortable while collaborating with their peers. In addition, using cubbies to store their supplies will increase student organization and decrease distractions during lessons. Soft seats and lap desks will give students who tire of sitting the option to lie down while working or simply provide them with a new work area and environment! These additions will be beneficial for all of my students, but especially the high number of ADHD students in my classroom. Six and seven-year-olds are not physically or mentally programmed to sit in rigid seats for several hours a day. But really, who is? Students have so little control over anything in their lives, let's let them have control over how and where they sit and learn!
