Flexible Seating for Success!

Help me give my students more flexible seating options within our classroom. Every student learns (and typically, sits) differently. Flexible seating such as the Children's Balance Ball, helps students integrate auditory, visual, and tactile systems of the body.

My Students

We have developed a loving community in our classroom. We are a team that works together to better ourselves and our learning. In our classroom, we make mistakes and learn from them. We celebrate our differences and work to understand each other more. We like to make learning fun and we take pride in our classroom. We're respectful and support each other whenever we need it. We are always talking about ways to make our classroom a more loving and caring place. In our classroom, we are a TEAM!

My Project

Having flexible seating in our classroom will help students to integrate auditory, visual, and tactile systems of the body. Flexible seating allows students of all walks, to be successful. We're giving students a choice of where to sit. It’s very powerful when kids feel like they have choice and a voice. It builds trust and mutual respect.

Children need to move.

The SoftZone Floor Cushions will allow students to sit or lay comfortably, on the ground while they work independently or collaboratively with their peers. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. It helps keep young minds more alert and focused.
