My 7 and 8 year olds love trying new things and especially love having ownership of their choices. They also have a lot of energy! These are a few of the reasons I have started letting my class venture away from sitting all day at a traditional desk, and instead have started giving them choices of where they feel they will do their best learning. In my classroom I have bathmats and cut-up yoga mats that my students use with clipboards when they are working independently, in partners or collaboratively in small groups. Giving my students the flexibility of where to sit has had such positive results. They are less distracted, get more work done in a shorter amount of time and are basically happier when they get to move around the classroom. I am hoping with the addition of chairs that are actually developed for the floor and wobble cushions that can be used on the floor or on chairs, my students will have more comfortable options while they are finding the best place to learn around the classroom.
