At 13 years old 84 minutes can seem like an eternity. With flexible seating I am hoping to make the most of that time with stimulating seating options. Stools for small group instruction help to make extra help more accessible and discrete at an age where image means everything. Balance ball seats are known to help to boost energy levels and increase productivity with an active body and a focused and engaged mind. They are considered an active outlet for having to sit for longer periods of time. Fidget bands are intended for much the same reasons. They are can be used to reduce anxiety and increase focus by allowing students to "fidget" without distracting the class. Some students also find that standing helps them to focus and stay active in class.

Most importantly all of these materials provide the students with options with gives them the opportunity to make decisions about their learning and be an active participant in it.
