All of my students are special in their own way. They all learn differently and love to be given the option to sit somewhere else other than a desk chair. Each of my students has gotten the chance to sit at some of the seating options that donors have already helped us get so far.
Unfortunately, we only have 7 different seating options and 17 students total.
We as a class have talked about how awesome it would be to have something other than a desk and chair to sit at for every single one of them. Many students are able to focus better on yoga balls or wobble seats. Some said they would enjoy sitting on a comfortable area as they do at home on a couch. They are all very excited to be able to have a different seating option for everyone in the class.
The impact that flexible seating has is amazing. By adding these new seat options to our classroom it will minimize the want to get up and leave the classroom or move around the room from just from being tired of sitting behind a desk on hard chairs. If a student is comfortable they will be able to concentrate and learn better.
Adding these items will also make our classroom feel like home.
A place that you look forward to coming to every day and not just a place that looks like everyone else's. A place they can call their own.
