Four years ago, I wrote a grant to begin implementing flexible seating in my first grade classroom. I bought six stability balls for my students to sit on during our small reading groups. The response was overwhelming. The students were much more engaged and were motivated to learn! This past year, I spent my own money to bring other options into my classroom. I have read lots of research that explains all of the benefits of flexible seating such as burning calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increased motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength. The amazing thing is I am already seeing all of this with the few flexible seating options that I currently have. The wobble chairs will allow them get out their extra energy out during the school day. The various tables will also increase seating options.
