Flexible Seating in 5th Grade

My students need flexible seating in order to be successful in the classroom.

My Students

I currently teach 2 classes of 5th Grade Math and 2 classes of 5th Grade Science a day. I teach about 120 students from that grade level. The Science classes are separated based upon ability level. I currently teach the lowest performing Science classes that mainly have students who are classified as EC or ESL. Also, one of my Math classes is a remediation class.

My students are amazing and they know that I have a high expectation of their performance in my classes.

They make me laugh on a daily basis and I miss them when we are on break! I want to make my classroom a community where they feel safe and free to learn in anyway possible.

My Project

My students are most productive when they are comfortable. These flexible seating options give the students more areas to learn in the most productive manner.

As a teacher, you always want your students to be successful but at the same time, it is hard to fund all of those options yourself.

I want all of my students to be successful and love their classroom community.

I want our classroom environments should be conducive to open collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. This simply cannot be done when kids are sitting in rows of desks all day.

Stools can be used at our small group tables. Yoga balls worked at our lowered table and is a good resource for my students with ADHD. The white table provides another space with stools for students to learn and be productive.

Research shows flexible seating include burning more calories, using up excess energy, improving metabolism, increased motivation and engagement, creating a better oxygen flow to the brain, and improving core strength and overall posture. It's no surprise that physical activity is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior.
