Have you ever watched a third grader sitting in a hard seat, trying to learn? I have and after observing my students for eight years, I am convinced that flexible seating is needed in my classroom. One of the biggest reasons for this is that students need to move. Physical activity is linked to both higher academic and behavioral performance. We all want that for our students, so why not do whatever we can to help them achieve this goal? This is why I would like both the wobble seats and sensory cushions for my classroom this year. The seating choices will allow the students to sit in a way that will be physically comfortable for them, thus increasing their engagement and motivation. Another reason I have decided on this type of classroom design is the power of choice. When students feel empowered to choose where and how they work best, it shows. Thank you for allowing me to help my students wiggle, move, and learn in a way that works for them.
