Fidget While We Focus: Flexible Seating

My students need more seating options within the classroom. The best way to focus is when you're comfortable. Having lap desks and different chairs will do just that.

My Students

My school is a Title I school where the entire school receives free lunch. This year I have 20 chatty third graders. My students are very active and creative.

These tiny humans are so incredible.

They all come from various economic backgrounds, many with a tough home life. No matter what's going on at home they will come in, shake it off and give me 100%. I want to give them every tool they can use to continue being successful.

My Project

Sitting in a desk all day isn't comfortable or fun. Right now my class room has just a couple bean bags for alternative seating. I have children who are craving something besides a chair to sit in and will try to sit on desks or counters or under desks.

Providing my students with more seating options will keep them safe and focused.

Having things like lap desks or yoga balls will ensure that they are sitting somewhere safe while getting their work done.

My kids are also very active. These alternative seating options will allow them to fidget while they focus!
