Comfort in the Classroom!

My students need flexible seating in their science classroom so they can choose where they will work.

My Students

Science, who doesn't love their science class! This year is going to be full of new and exciting challenges. My students will be actively engaged in their learning by conducting investigations, analyze and interpret data, as well as obtain and communication information.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

I incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and my goal this year is flexible seating! I want my students to be able to focus on the important information they will be learning, and we are able to learn best in a safe and relaxing environment.

My Project

I've selected video gaming chairs, because we know students will feel right at home in them. I want my students to be comfortable and in their element (pardon the pun) when they are actively engaged in their science inquiries.

Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive.

I have also chosen a 3 piece high top table that has additional storage. The students will be able to stand if that is their preference.

Research has shown seating can affect student success in several ways, whether it reduces their stress or they are able to position themselves safely near the teacher. This will be up to them, they will have a choice.
