Flexible Seating for First Graders!

My students need flexible seating options because they learn best when their bodies feel supported and comfortable.

My Students

In our classroom, we focus on persevering through difficult tasks to make new discoveries. We strive to explore all reasons and explanations for things and never stop at "because."

My students are brilliant, inquisitive, and extremely empathetic.

They work endlessly to complete their work successfully. Even more than this, they work tirelessly to ensure that their classmates are also experiencing success. They love working on computers and pushing each other past their expected limits, unknowingly cultivating a culture of excellence!

My Project

As adults, we get to choose the types of chairs and sofas that we want in our space because we want to be comfortable. Why wouldn't our scholars want the same thing? When we're not physically comfortable, it is hard to focus. For this project, we are asking for two bean bags, a small sofa, and two balancing balls for our classroom. We already have some wobble seats and four comfy lawn chairs for students to choose from. However, with 24 students in the room, this is not enough for everyone.

My students have very busy bodies, but they are at their best when they can move and work at the same time.

These seating options allow my students to work comfortably. They will be able to choose the seat that supports the work that they are asked to complete.
