Flexible seating allows students the choice and movement in their seating arrangements that can greatly improve behavior and academic performance. This throws the idea of a traditional classroom out the window. Instead of desks and chairs, I'm seeking donations to help build a variety of seating options which include yoga balls, bean bag chairs, and stools. This method will allow my students to do their best learning. For example, I do my best work sitting in a soft chair at a desk. My husband works best laying on the couch with a laptop. Children are no different. Just like children have different learning styles, they have different physical needs when it comes to learning. “When the body is active, the brain is active”. I will be teaching my students how to choose a spot that is the most conducive to their learning style.
