Developmentally Appropriate Seating!

Help me give my students an opportunity for seating that's developmentally appropriate by having tables and chairs that meet their needs and help with developing visual discrimination skills.

My Students

Exploring, building and developing skills that will help them access and integrate functionally both at home and in school is the goal of my classroom environment. Providing my special education preschool children with an environment where they can reach their full potential is my professional goal. Often times, my classroom is the first experience children have in learning opportunities and a safe and nurturing environment.

Meeting the individual needs of all the children in my special education preschool classroom can be challenging but the rewards are far greater.

Each child brings in a story ready to be told, sometimes it just takes a little longer and someone with patience to wait and listen.

My Project

In seating with chairs and tables that are developmentally appropriate and meet physical needs, children will use energy to focus on activities and tasks at hand versus swinging feet from higher tables and chairs. Children will be able to build independence in sitting and moving from table to table using visual discrimination with colored tables and chairs.

In using tables and chairs that meet physical needs, children will build independence in completing tasks, therefore, building on individual needs.

I have found that when children are focused on seating comfortably their attention is no longer on completing activities rather than on remaining on seat safely.
