The students in my classroom range from preschool up to fifth graders. When students enter my room, they are there to work on skills that are challenging for them. Because of this, I want to give them the option to choose a seat that helps them to best maintain their focus and attention.
Many of my students have attention deficit disorders, sensory processing disorders, and other needs that make it difficult for them to sit still in a typical classroom chair.
They are constantly asking to stand, sit on the floor, and move around in order to help them better focus. I've noticed this need to be very high this year, which is why we are asking for you help!
Wobble chairs, wiggle seats, and exercise balls will be great additions to my classroom. These flexible seating options will provide my students with the power to make a choice that will improve their attention to learning.
Flexible seating will help my students maintain focus and attention while they are trying to learn new skills. All students in my classroom have special needs. By allowing students to have flexible seating choices, they can sit in a place that is comfortable for them in order to maintain focus on the tasks at hand.
This year, I am asking for your help in getting my students the option to have flexible seating that will benefit their learning.
Rather than students standing up or climbing on chairs and tables, they will have a seat that gives them the ability to move around as needed. Many students have this option in other classrooms and consistency across the school would be very beneficial. We need your help!
