Flexible Seating for Excellent Learning

My students need flexible seating options such as fidget bands and balance balls to better focus on learning.

My Students

My students are ready for the new school year and are excited to learn. Many of my students have difficulty reading grade-level books. They need audio stories to engage them and make reading fun again.

My students are children with autism, learning disabilities, and other impairments which often makes accessing books difficult.

They are creative and enjoy stories but many come from homes where books are not available.

We are a Title I school in rural South Carolina where 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch. They want to read, but many become frustrated when they cannot understand what they have read or they spend all of their energy decoding words that they do not remember what they have read. They are going to be successful. This project will help!

My Project

My students wiggle, fidget, and squirm. We spend the first years of life learning to walk and talk then we go to school where we have to sit down and be quiet. Not in my room! My students are always moving, dancing, clapping, and stomping.

There are times when we need to sit and concentrate.

These are the times we need flexible seating options in order to wiggle a little while still participating in the lesson. We already have 2 bean bag chairs which the students love. Now we will add more options including moveable seats and bouncy bands on the chairs.

My students can't wait to see their new seats and use them in order to better concentrate and learn!
