These items will enhance the learning of my diverse students’ by giving them a choice. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed. Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused, and ready to learn. Giving students choices about their physical classroom space teachers them higher-order thinking skills. Outside the windows of our classroom is a dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing world full of choices. How can we expect our students to solve problems and make choices independently if we constantly solve their problems and make their choices for them. Children also need to move. Flexible seating helps keep young minds more alert and focused. An uncomfortable student is distracted and unproductive. Who wouldn’t be? The wobble cushions will bring an added comfort for students to learn, as they will be placed on top of the classroom standard chairs. The yoga balls will help my active students focus much better. The project cases will be used for my students to place their personal materials inside of, so they can choice a different seat each day.
