Flexible seating in my first/second grade classroom will give my students a choice in how they learn best. The different seating options, wobble chairs, floor seats, and balance balls, gives them power over their own learning and their unique learning style. I have taught first grade for seven years and I have always allowed students to choose different spots in the classroom to complete their work. I have noticed that students are more excited and more engaged in their class work just by giving them a choice. By adding flexible seating options and not just sitting at tables or on the floors I expect that my students even be more excited and focused because they can choose something different every time they complete their work in the classroom. I also believe that with flexible seating in my classroom it will help students collaborate and build a sense of community together as well as allow them to practice problem-solving skills. The bottom line for me as a teacher and as a parent is that I want every child to feel comfortable and happy when they are learning.
