At school, kids are expected to sit all day and be engaged in learning. It's not so easy. Kids get the wiggles, and sometimes movement breaks just aren't enough. Throughout the learning process, kids need to be comfortable. This means something different for each child. Flexible seating options in my classroom would allow my kids to choose an option besides a plastic, wiggle-less chair. These seating options would help level the playing field for my students. Yes, all kids get the wiggles, but my kids oftentimes have an extra hard time catching up to where their peers are at. They need the individualized support during the school day and I believe flexible seating choices would benefit them greatly. I watch every day as they struggle to stay in their seats for a lesson or work time. It pains me to tell them over and over again to come back and sit in their chairs. If they had the option of a wobble chair, ball chair, floor chair, or a wobble cushion, they would be able to stabilize enough to get some learning done. As mentioned earlier, kids need to be comfortable in order to learn and I believe flexible seating choices would increase their comfort level in my classroom.
