My Students

When I need to get work done, I like to find somewhere comfortable to sit. The same goes for my second graders. They like to sit somewhere they feel most comfortable while working hard in the classroom. The students work best when they are in a comfortable place they have chosen.

These students are still little and aren't meant to learn while sitting in a seat all day long.

They need to move frequently to keep their mind on the task they're completing.

My Project

Students learn more than reading and math during the school day. They learn life skills to help them succeed. By having many different flexible seating options, the students are free to choose where they would like to sit. They learn to make smart choices about the seat to help them focus and succeed during the school day. This daily choice helps them learn to make smart choice later in their lives.

These students are still little and aren't meant to sit in a chair all day long.

They can't stay focused for very long without moving. While I do provide frequent "brain breaks", there isn't enough time in the day to get them moving as often as they need to and still teach them everything they need to learn. These different seating options will allow the students to move when they need and continue to learn.

Flexible seating helps the students focus more during the school day. When the students are able to move while working their engagement increases. They are able to burn off any excess energy they have while keep their whole mind on the task they are working on.

When I implemented a modified flexible seating, students sitting and laying on the floor, last year, I noticed the student's engagement and focus increased. Students were completing work quicker and were scoring much higher on things we were working on. This project will help me provide the students with multiple seating options to help all children find a place that will help them learn and succeed.
