Flexible seating will provide my students with the choice in where they work. Even as adults we don’t want to spend all day sitting in a desk. Most of my students are “farm kids”. They spend most of their time outside helping on their family farm. During school it is hard for them to spend all day sitting in a desk. Flexible seating not only allows students with the choice of where they sit, it also helps with being comfortable. Through flexible seating I have seen an increase in collaboration, communication, and fun in my classroom. I don’t have a desk in my classroom, instead have a table which is always open to my students. My philosophy is if I have a table I am always welcoming my students to come and receive help. I truly want my students to succeed in my classroom! I have incorporated more and more flexible seating into my classroom. With your generosity, I would be able to allow enough wobble seats for all of my students. There are several students in my classroom who prefer standing up. The standing table would give my students the chance to collaborate and work together standing up. It would also be a great place for my students who like to stand. With flexible seating also comes the importance of being kind to each other, sharing the “favorite” spots, and learning to take turns. I am excited to give this opportunity to my students.
