Most of my students do their best work while being able to move a little bit while doing it. That is the reason why I am asking for wobble chairs, yoga ball chairs, and lap desks. 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. My students are currently allowed to get clipboards and sit on bean bags or on the floor. 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. My students are more engaged and less disruptive when they are given a choice of where to work. The flexible seating that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and their attitudes toward working!
