Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their engagement in learning. Currently, my students are able to use a variety of locations on the floor, different tables, on the carpet, etc. to find a suitable learning environment for themselves. I have a couple of chairs, clipboards, and pillows to provide some flexible seating for my students, but making them comfortable and engaging their bodies is important for engaging their minds. I have noticed differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. Traditional desks confine the creativity and curiosity of my students, with flexible seating they are more engaged and excited about learning. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options. The wobble stools and ball chairs will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and computer/desk stands will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students' work and hope that the additional options will help us be more engaged and take control of our learning!
