These materials will help motivate my students and in the different ways they learn. By having flexible seating, I am allowing my students that need movement throughout the day to be able to focus on their work. Flexible seating is the idea where students choose a "non-traditional" learning spot that is comfortable and where they will be most successful. Students learn best when they are comfortable and that comfort looks different for every student. A variety of choices ensures that each student will be able to find a successful spot, but also provides them the opportunity to change their spot if they see it is not working. Providing more choices for seating leads to more productive, successful students. Their choice in seating provides them with the movement, collaboration, comfort, and sensory input that is individual to each child. Wobble seats and scoop chairs help those students who need a little wiggle while they work.
