Flexible Seating for Fabulous Students

My students need these fun seating options (soft seats, balance balls, and stools) to help them have different choices for their "smart seat."

My Students

Each year, I am blessed with an amazing group of 18-22 kiddos who are all FULL OF ENERGY! As you know, second graders are full of wiggles and giggles!

We are a diverse, middle-class community with hard-working teachers and parents.

One thing is for sure, we ALL want what's best for the kids!

Research is showing, more than ever before, that students need choice in their learning, and they should be MOVING. Because I have these kiddos almost all day long, I need help to keep them actively engaged in the classroom! A smart spot (that provides movement) is the perfect tool!

Help me create this environment for my students!

My Project

The flexible seating craze has been sweeping the nation! Last year, I started with 5 wobble chairs and the kiddos LOVED them! This year, I want every child to be able to have a choice in their seating. I am asking for yoga balls so that my bouncy friends have a smart spot. I have requested cushions for kiddos to sit on at a lowered table (this would be MY smart spot). I am also asking for stools to use at a raised table. This table will be raised for my kids who like to stand but will provide a seat for when they are ready to sit.

We want kids comfortable and happy so that they can do their best learning!

As you know, in a group of up to 22 students, there are many different learning styles. Some kids like to stand, some like to bounce, some like to sit on the floor, and some want a chair. Students learn where their smart spots are. We need these different items to give these smart spots to the kids!
