My students need flexible seating which allows them to feel empowered by choosing their favorite seating, build core strength and healthy posture, improve concentration and allow students to get out their wiggles.
My students are eager to learn, grow, and work together to accomplish anything ask of them!
Many students are on the school bus for an hour each way and arrive at school with lots of wiggles that need to be released!
We are a Title I school which means that a significant portion of the students in our school come from low-income families. This doesn't stop the sweet children from being excited to explore and learn new things. It just means that I want to work extra hard to provide as many opportunities for them as possible.
My goal is to provide wobble chairs, exercise ball with stability rings, and children’s balance balls with stability legs.
Each student is unique and by designing a classroom with a variety of flexible seating, students are allowed to reach their full potential without being confined to a desk and traditional chair.
Students will choose the seat they wish to use each day. This empowers them with choice as well as constructive, safe movement. Currently my students have the choice to sit, stand, or lay on the floor. Using these new flexible seating options, my students will have choices for seating that allows them to be more comfortable in the classroom.
