Creative Seating for a Dynamic Classroom

My students need cozy places to dive into a good book. Some students' motors are always running, so it is great to have options for them as well!

My Students

Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds, and diversity is celebrated often. Our school houses the ESL program for our district, so many students speak more than one language and come from homes where English is not the primary language.

Our school works hard to ensure that all students, from all cultures and walks of life, feel safe to learn and grow.

Our students are kind, accepting and work hard. We are also a Title 1 school, which can present its own set of challenges that impact learning. My goal is to foster a love of learning through books and story-telling.

My Project

Students in my classroom spend most of their time reading. It can be difficult to get comfortable in a regular desk chair, so providing appealing seat choices is a must. We follow the reading workshop model at our school, which affords students large chunks of time to read independently. Cozy beanbag chairs practically invite students to dive into a good book! I plan on using them to create comfortable seating for students to use around the room while they build reading stamina and work on fluency.

Many students are constantly on the go, and allowing them to move and wiggle while they work is a huge plus.

I already utilize yoga balls as a seating choice, and it has helped even the most energetic of students hone in on the task at hand. Studies have shown that students should be given the opportunity to move, and stools that provide that movement help students focus during their seatwork.

These stools will be used during writing time and will allow students to wiggle and move while they are focused on creating both fiction and non-fiction pieces.
