Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Each day my students can choose where they sit. Currently most of my students are choosing to work at a table sitting in regular hard chairs that pull their hair and hurt their backs and bottoms. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my 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, with a regular boring chair. My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to sit. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The balance balls will help my students get some of their movement out, and help their posture, but not disrupt their learning. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The disks will help those students in traditional chairs or those who are sitting on the floor to wiggle as well. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
