Flexible 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. Currently, SJI Tigers are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our school such as: at different tables inside the classroom, sitting under tables with clip boards, tables in the hallway or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. We notice amazing differences in our 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. TIGERS are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work. The products that I have selected will help our students by giving them additional seating options in the hallways to make more effective learning choices. The rocking chairs are also helpful to when students need to step in the hallway to regulate big emotions that teenagers have! We have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
