Flex Seating for Fabulous Kids!

Help me give my students choice and comfort with flexible seating options. Cushions, stability balls, and stools encourage movement and collaboration while increasing focus.

My Students

I teach the sweetest bunch of students who come from varying backgrounds, including transient military families and low-income households. We have been recognized as a Global-Ready School for teaching globally-minded, future leaders. Through a program known as Leader in Me, we also strive to practice the 7 habits of happy kids throughout our school days.

When the atmosphere encourages learning, the learning is irresistible.

My students learn best through hands-on, authentic experiences that allow them to move throughout the classroom. Flexible seating options allow choice and engagement for optimal learning.

My Project

The use of flexible seating in the classroom allow students to take ownership and accountability for their learning time. The stability balls and tractor stools allow students to lean, sway, wiggle, and bounce, which improves gross motor skills as well as increasing focus.

Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive.

A well-nurtured student is a successful one.

The seat cushions will give students a choice of where they sit within the classroom. These different seating options allow movement into collaborative spaces, allowing students to work together more easily also.
