This project will allow my kindergarteners to learn in an environment where their needs are the main focus. Flexible seating helps young learners fulfill the natural need of movement, while still allowing them to learn. Flexible seating allows young students to wobble, rock, bounce, or lean, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. This helps to keep young minds more alert and focused. It is essential for young learners to have strong core muscles. Strong core muscles help improve their fine motor skills (writing and cutting), visual perception (learning to read), and also improves their balance. Many flexible seating options also stimulate students' sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information. Sensory input is especially helpful for students with ADHD, ADD, and ASD. Flexible seating in the classroom also encourages young children to learn in a new way, by helping them to feel empowered to make individual choices on how they learn. Our current stiff chairs, don't always properly fit their small bodies, and don't fulfill their need for natural movement. The current chairs in my classroom also allow for a lot of slouching and feet dangling. When students are uncomfortable, they are often distracted and unproductive. Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions throughout the classroom, which in turn helps students to be calm, focused, and productive. Each of the materials listed in this project will help my students develop physically, as well as help them focus and learn. Any amount will help me achieve this goal for my students! Achieving this goal will not just support my incoming 23 kindergarteners, but will support young learners for many years to come!
