Flexible Seating for Young Learners

My students need to have flexible seating to maximize their learning.

My Students

My classroom is made up of 22 amazing students, all with different learning styles. My philosophy as a teacher is personalized, collaborative learning. In order for students to maximize their learning, I believe that they should have a flexible learning environment. My students thrive when they have opportunities to collaborate with peers. Flexible seating will allow students to work in different areas of the room with a partner. For this reason, I am asking for donations to fund flexible seating in my classroom.

My Project

Flexible seating is a great way for learners to be in charge of their learning process. In a first grade classroom flexible seating allows students to still move around and still learn without being attached to a desk all day. My students learning is maximized when they are able to move around the room as well as engage in hands-on learning. I would like to have flexible seating materials inside of my classroom, so students can take their learning outside of a desk and chair. The flexible seating will also encourage partner and group collaboration. I will also use the flexible seating for differentiation lessons.

I selected seats that would allow students to easily expand their work environment in the classroom.

My classroom theme is camping, which is why I selected the soft and safe tree seat. These seats will be excellent for partner phonics reading. The soft seats will be used for individual work, which allows students to select a spot in the room that they can be the most productive. The comfy floor seats are a great option for students when they have independent reading time.
