Engagement Through Seating? It Can Happen!

My students need six wobble chairs and six stability balls for flexible seating to enhance focus and productivity.

My Students

I am very fortunate to have an energetic and eager class of 24 amazing first and second grade learners. Our classroom has a wide variety of learning styles and levels which makes teaching an adventure every day. I am very fortunate to have incredibly supportive parents and support staff on campus to ensure students receive the best possible education. The students are eager to embrace the learning in the classroom and are active participants. This class has limitless academic possibilities and I would like to provide seating opportunities that mesh with their learning styles.

My Project

My class of first and second graders would benefit from a flexible seating format in the classroom. We do a lot with small groups to address the needs of both grade levels and the variety of seating options would increase engagement and excitement. Students, especially the little guys, need to move around consistenty. The flexible seating options would alllow them more movement in their seat, which inreases engagement and focus. Also, with a variety of seat options students would be excited to be able to go to the next area with the "green balls" or the "wobble seats" for their next center/group.
