My Students

My middle school students need seating that is flexible and allows them to engage with their peers around them. Student need to have a variety of seating options, which include tables, balance balls, and stools that move and by offering them flexible seating this will provide the movement they need to increase their learning.

Middle schoolers often get antsy and wiggly, and the traditional classroom setting is not very conducive to the amount of movement a middle schooler produces!

Flexible seating is a great way to not only fix the wiggle and all the movement, but is also a great way to build a strong sense of community within the classroom.

My Project

This school year I would like to begin the transition to flexible seating in my classroom. Over the past ten years, I have noticed students shifting and moving in their desks trying to get comfortable to learn. It is not uncommon to find my students standing beside their desks (since their chairs are attached to their desks), on the floor, and sometimes sitting on a chair, using the built in countertop in the classroom. Moving into groups is always a struggle with the desks my students currently have. Flexible seating will also encourage mobility and flexibility within my student grouping.

The classroom should be a place where students feel comfortable; the classroom should be a place that is inviting as well as motivating for all children making them want to put their best foot forward.

By having flexible seating options that will give my students the opportunity to select a learning space that will stimulates their personal learning. By adding these tables, stools, and other flexible seating options, my students will have a variety of safe seating options in the classroom, while allowing them to learn and collaborate with their peers.
