Help me give my students bean bag chairs to provide optional seating to help them stay focused and ready to learn at all times of our day!
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.
One challenge I find throughout our day is the need for movement and flexible seating.
I currently have very old, very thin yoga mats that they use when doing group work or independent work and they are not comfy anymore. Offering seating that is different than their desks and hard chairs really helps with their learning!
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. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board.
Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.
I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost 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. Now I want to give them comfy seating options! Bean bag chairs have been on the wish list for quite some time!
