Providing these options for seating to my students, rather than always requiring all students to sit in the provided rigid, uncomfortable classroom chairs, will be one of the first steps in allowing my students to be part of their own learning. By making a seemingly simple decision, such as what type of seat to sit in for the day, can lead to huge differences in the level of a child's success. First, this provides the students with locus of control in some part of their day. Next, they know themselves best, and we all work best when we are comfortable! In addition, I have never sat in a straight-backed hard chair for 7 hours a day, yet, we expect young children to do it! And, to do it happily and cooperatively! Finally, these seats provide a non-disruptive outlet for the children's energy, throughout the day. As you see, the question isn't really "Why?", but it is "Why isn't everyone?!"
