Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their learning environment. Alternative seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. Alternative seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given choices in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged. The beanbags, pillows, and comfy floor seats that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. I have seen how having choices can positively affect my students learning.
