Flexible Seating Options for Learning

My students need some great flexible seating options! We do a lot of hands-on projects in our room, and the balance balls and other items would provide for the best learning to take place every day!

My Students

I teach in a small, rural school in Iowa. I absolutely love it! My students come to school each day eager to learn! They are full of questions and curiosity, and light up when they achieve a goal or learn something new. They are always so eager to grow.

Each student in my class loves learning, however the ways they learn best vary greatly.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing how their varied gifts and strengths come together in the classroom every day.

My Project

In my classroom, we are learning hands-on. Every day, the kids are up and moving around, working on projects, and learning in various settings in the classroom.

The balance balls, cushions, and trays will ensure that there are various seating options available in my room for each student throughout the day.

I want each student in my classroom to learn in an environment that is best meeting their needs at that moment.

We also do not have carpet in the classroom, so those rugs would be so great to offer a little more comfort if we're working around the room.
