Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. 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. This project will give students a comfortable place to do their work as well as lap desks to make doing the work easy. The cubbies will provide students with storage space for their supplies, so they are able to move throughout the room where they are most comfortable working, instead of keeping all their supplies in their desks. I have seen, first hand, the benefits of flexible seating in the classroom. Kids feel more comfortable and are thereby more motivated to do their best work.
