Flexible Seating for First Grade!

Help me give my students flexible seating options! I am hoping to add wobble stools, pillows, yoga mats, and other movement seats to my classroom.

My Students

The school year seems to be flying by with my first graders. I have a class of 12 students. They are sweet, kind, and smart! My firsties are highly motivated and going to do big things! The 6 and 7 year olds love to move their bodies.

In order to meet the needs of my students and enhance their learning I am looking to add new flexible seating options to my classroom.

I would love to provide my first graders with flexible seating!

My Project

These flexible seating options will increase my students' motivation and ability to focus. Students will get to test out the different options and use (or not use) what they think is best for them.

As we all know, first graders need to move their bodies!

This project will give my students the opportunity to move their bodies in a productive manner. It will increase their focus and ability to learn!

Thank you so much for your consideration! I can't wait to see my students' faces when I introduce all of the new seating options. They are going to love it!
