My classroom specifically benefits students with behavioral and emotional disabilities. These students often struggle with regulating their behaviors in the classroom or staying attentive to the task at hand. These fidgets can help them calm down in a time of crisis as well as stay focused while learning. Flexible seating is a way to empower students by giving them choices in their everyday learning experience, improve their ability to retain information and focus by providing them with sensory input, and give them a comfortable learning space. With wobble stools, yoga balls and other seating options, I hope to create an even more comfortable and communal learning space for my students.
