Students are not all the same, They do not come to school with the same background, resources or abilities. Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. 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. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. An uncomfortable student is a distracted and unproductive student. Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive. Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information. Sensory input is especially helpful for students with ADHD, ADD and ASD. A flexible classroom allows students to move furniture and gives them opportunities to work separately or in groups. The items I have selected in this project will allow students to make choices about their learning environment. They can choose to sit at a low table on the floor with a wobble seat or cushion, sit at a regular height table with a fidget chair band or on a stool. Allowing students to make choices about how they learn increases their excitement about learning. It gives them more freedom of movement and helps them with sensory processing needs.
