Flex Seating for Busy Bodies

Help me give my students wobble stools and other flex seating options to create a more student-centered learning environment.

My Students

My classroom is filled with 22 kindergarteners who are eager to learn. Everyday my students show up with big smiles, looking ahead at what's to come for the day. I want to keep their love of learning alive.

My school is a Title 1 school, where more than 80% of students are on free or reduced lunch.

My goal is to maximize their learning potential through flexible seating options. I want to give them the opportunity to discover how they learn best, make their own choices, and grow as individuals.

My Project

“Outside the windows of our classroom is a dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing world full of choices. How can we expect our students to solve problems and make choices independently if we constantly solve their problems and make their choices for them?” - Kayla Delzer

Students need to be able to choose where they feel most comfortable learning.

With this project, I will be able to give them more seating options to choose from. By giving students a variety of flexible seating options, they will not only feel physically more comfortable, but it will engage them to learn in a way that actually works for them!
