Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, students can choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. At my school, we use flexible seating as a way for students to make choices, which helps them be more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. Students 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 my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The yoga balls will help them with their posture and balance and give them an opportunity to bounce in place to let out some of their energy during lessons. Because students learn best when they are engaged and have the opportunity to participate, all of the math games and manipulatives will help my students learn their math facts in a fun and engaging way. As a first year teacher, I hope that these additional supplies in my classroom will help my students grow and achieve success!
