Flexible Seating for a Flexible Classroom Community
My students need access to flexible seating options in the classroom. The NeoRok Wobble stools allow them to move and learn at the same time. The other options give them choice for where they learn best.
My students are creative, energetic and engaged learners! The students in my classes come from a variety of different cultural backgrounds and varied socioeconmic statuses as well as having many different learning needs.
Together they are working to become independent life long learners with a focus on 21st century skills and authentic learning opportunities.
There are so many different ways for students to be successful learners and we work hard together to create the classroom community that will help us achieve this goal!
I have been introducing different types of flexible seating within my classroom for the last few years to increase engagement and aid all students in achieving success in the classroom. I was able to introduce some yoga balls, wobble stools, standing desks and floor options with the support of my school and our PTA but I want to have a fully flexible classroom and for that I need you help!
The wobbles stools are the most expensive item but I have found them to be most effective when students use them correctly.
The stools allow students to move around in their seat and fidget while still focusing on their work. The other options will allow students to not only choose the type of seat they will learn best in, but also the area of the classroom (ex. bean bags with clipboards, floor seats to spread out on the carpet and stability balls to allow movement).
My goal with the flexible seating is to allow students the ability to become more independent, self aware, and allow them to take ownership of their own learning. The overall focus of my classroom community is to foster more then just learning of the curriculum but to engage students, give them skills needed to be successful in the 21st century and push them to become independent life long learners. The access to flexible seating helps to promote these goals.
