My students need these stools added to their classroom to replace standard desk chairs. I am flipping our classroom from a traditional setting to a fun, inviting, rich environment that fosters student learning and movement.
My students every year are very special to me. They come from different home lives, split families, and the majority are from low income homes. Our school is a Title I School. All of our students receive free and reduced lunch in the county due to the overall percent of poverty. My students live in a small rural area. The majority are Caucasians; however, we do have other subgroups.
I am wanting to create a learning environment that has flexible seating.
I have purchased several ball seats and created seats out of crates. I can see the difference in behavior, enjoyment, and academic focus with the flexible seating in my classroom verses the typical students in desks in rows.
These Neorok stools are part of flipping my classroom from a standard room to one that offers students a variety of seat choices. I believe that flexible seating is a great tool for educators to use to help decrease behavior problems and increase academic achievement. This will be part of making the classroom more inviting and a fun place to be and learn. Students are more likely to work hard when they are given a choice and when things are fun for them. In my classroom, I say no more to the straight rows of desk and chairs with everyone remaining seated all day doing work. We are up moving around, changing stations which all include different types of fun seating.
