Take a moment to imagine an optimal environment for comfort, collaboration, learning, and productivity. You’re probably not thinking of rows of desks, stiff chairs, and the lovely fluorescent lighting that dominate more classrooms today, are you?! While I may not be able to do too much about the desks and lightbulbs, with your help and support we could provide my students with a refreshingly different classroom environment this school year - one that contains enough structure to support its many unique learners, but also one with enough flexibility to adapt to unique needs and preferences. The goal of flexible seating is to better engage students to and empower them with choices by providing diverse seating options. Flexible seating facilitated student-centered, collaborative learning, fosters a positive classroom community, and even promotes healthy kinesthetic learning. While some students work better at their desks, I have many students who love having the choice of moving their seats at different parts of the day!
