30-second dance breaks should be something that every human embraces. We sure do in our classroom! We are a class that loves to give all types of high fives for positive praise (the current favorite is a kitty high-five), give out a little "woot woot" when things go well for each other, and we like to challenge ourselves to learn all that we can. We even extend that challenge to our classroom Beanie Baby dog named Fred, who never listens, so we have to reteach him all that we have learned at the end of our lessons.
The energy we release in our classroom goes toward building a learning environment that fosters an adoration of learning.
We are a caring, bouncy bunch. I love my students more than I can express, and I have loved getting to know these amazing little humans.
Flexible seating in early education classrooms allows students to grant their little bodies the ability to move around, while engaging their minds on the task or lesson before them. Flexible seating gives students the power to choose, giving them autonomy on how they want to release that sensory stimulation that is part of their development.
By allowing students to engage in sensory stimulation through flexible seating, they will be able to better engage in the classroom learning experience.
I believe that flexible seating is a great way for students to get those wiggles out in a healthy, positive, and classroom appropriate way. I am requesting floor cushions, lapdesks, wobble chairs, and ball chairs.
