Kindergarten is an important part of any child's educational foundation. Students come in eager to learn how to read and write. Kindergarten students can learn in many different ways. My students are no exception. I work at a Title I school. Many students come from low income homes with no preschool background. This is their first school experience and this is an exciting time for them. Their classroom environment is an essential part of their learning. A flexible classroom will enable each student to learn according to his or her needs.
Flexible seating in any classroom has been known to help a student's learning environment. Kindergarten students would especially benefit from flexible seating. It helps students use their energy while learning. It allows students to feel relaxed and comfortable as they do their school work. Most importantly, it gives a student the opportunity to choose what type of seating works best for his or her learning. Students will be able to choose from a beanbag, a student lap desk, a wobble chair, or a balance ball. Each of these seating choices allows students to pick what best works for their learning style.
A flexible seating classroom allows a class to be student based instead of teacher based.
Allowing kindergarten students to choose their own seating style lets them to be independent. The students are able to have the option of a seat that fits their learning style the best. A flexible seating classroom is an environment that opens a whole new way of learning. My students need beanbag seats, Wobble chairs, and balance ball seats.
