Children need to move. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive. As one teacher said, “There is no better way to show your support for a student-centered classroom, than creating a classroom from a child’s point of view.” In her opinion, comfortable students are engaged students. Making students comfortable in the classroom helps them learn effectively. As well, my students come from areas where they are given up on. Too frequently I have heard teachers say I can't do that or won't provide that because they won't do well with it or they don't know how to act. I believe in my heart of hearts that I provide this environment for these children that they will rise to the education and not only respect the equipment and environment but they will truly appreciate and learn from it. Rita Pearson once said "Students must know you care before they care to learn". What better way to tie in caring and learning with an environment suited to choice and comfort.
