Help me give my students a middle school learning environment that supports all learners with seating options such as a high tables/stools, wobble seats, cushions, and yoga ball seats for student choice, motivation, and focus.
How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed? A review of student grades and school-wide data indicate that the lowest performing group at our middle school has not made adequate progress.
Our scholars are eager to learn and do so best when the learning environment is comfortable and provides choices for different learning styles.
I am sure that with flexible seating options to do so they can achieve anything and demonstrate tremendous growth. I am excited to facilitate that!
Flexible seating allows all students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for their learning style. Students choose a location in the classroom that works for them, an opportunity rarely offered in middle school. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables or sitting on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them and helping them keep focus. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. Students always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
The products that we have selected will help students by giving them seating options to make the most effective learning choices.
The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The comfy cushion seats and the stools will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen how choice can positively affect students work and classroom culture and know the additional options will help us grow even more!
