Flexible Seating for Flexible Learning

My students need flexible seating options such as Hokki stools, clipboards, lap trays and balance balls. Five- and six-year olds need to be able to move when they are working. Our current classroom has only 2 options - chairs at tables and sitting on the floor.

My Students

Our school is in its 19th year. It focuses on science and uses a year-round schedule, which means students attend 9 weeks of school and then have 3 weeks off. Intersession, similar to summer school, is offered during 3 breaks. We have a unique science Inquiry Zone for our students. 80.4% of our students qualifies for free or reduced lunch. 30.5% of our students qualify for English language services. 10.9% of our students qualify for special education services.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and neighborhoods from our city.

In my classroom alone, six different languages are represented by my students. Less than half of my students attended pre-kindergarten in our school district.

My Project

My students are busy! They are always moving, just like they should be! They're 5- and 6-year-olds! They work so hard all day. However, sitting in a chair at a table or on the hard floor with a clipboard isn't always the best learning environment for them. They need more options!

Imagine a learning environment where students can choose where they move and work!

It sounds perfect for my students. With guidance, my hope is that more students will reach their full potential.

I would like to add Hokki stools to our guided reading table. Balance balls would be added to our art center. I would like to lower a table and have students sit on sit-upons on the floor. Wobble seats would be helpful when sitting on the floor and in chairs. Students would have the option to use tray tables instead of clipboards. And for those who like to stand, there would be balance boards to use next to the counter.
