My students need additional options for flexible seating, such as stools and yoga balls. I began using flexible seating this year and my students loved it! They loved coming into the classroom each day and choosing the best seating option for them!
My school is located near the Gulf Coast of Texas near the Louisiana border. We have endured many natural disasters over the years from hurricanes to unusual freezing temperatures. However my students and their families are the first ones to jump in and lend a helping hand. I see this on a daily basis in the classroom as kids are so eager to help one another.
My students are amazing humans!
They are active and curious and eager to try new things. I began using balanced literacy this year as well as using flexible seating and they have flourished as readers, writers and socially! They are devouring books like never before, they write me letters about the deep understandings they have of the books they read. I am seeking resources to extend this success and help my students grow as readers and writers!
Flexible seating is a hot topic and I recently added this to my classroom. My students LOVE it! Students have the option to choose what type of seating suits their learning style.
I would like to add some large exercise ball options as it is really good for posture and students who have the urge to move when working.
I also have some floor desk trays so the picnic seats with a back would help students who choose to work on the floor have something to lean against too.
Flexible seating is a great way to differentiate learning styles and give students ownership in what works best for them.
