The students in my classroom will benefit from balance ball chairs, wobble stools and writing trays in several ways. They will be able to fidget, move and engage their bodies while staying focused in a small group and or working independently. Research shows that students learn best when they are comfortable and have the ability to move when needed. The stools will allow students in small groups to engage their posture to sit up straight which then works their core muscles to help sustain attention. If students aren't working with me in small group they are on the computers reinforcing their skills through a program which targets each students' individual needs. Students can use the balance ball chairs to move while working, so they do not lose attention. The writing trays will help students who are more comfortable working independently on the floor to stay focused. When students are comfortable and the classroom feels more like home they feel safe and open to learning and being themselves. The flexible seating gives students options to engage their bodies while learning.
