Help me give my students some ways to stay active while learning with wobble cushions and bean bags.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They come to school each day ready to try new things. In my classroom, we have different types of centers which the students are able to work on each day. This is something they love to participate in.

Flexible seating will allow them a choice to work where they feel more comfortable and will be able to focus.

Studies show that movement has increased student engagement.

The students that I have this year are eager to help each other and are willing to try new things. Their smiles when they walk into my classroom brighten my day.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. They always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. My students are more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

The wobble cushions and wobble chairs will allow students to sit at their desk or tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out.

The bean bags will be a place of learning while they are working on reading projects or on the computers.
