Children thrive on choice and differentiation. Students will be able to have choice in where they sit and what type of seat they choose. This is beneficial to students who are busy or like to move a lot, which is typical of the students I teach. When students have choice, they tend to listen better because they’re not restricted to the classic chair/desk combination. It reduces sleeping in class as this type of seating causes them to sit up and control their posture. It also helps with core strength, which is something our students today are lacking. I hope you’ll fund our project and help make our classroom an inviting place where choice is number one!
