Flexible Seats For Flexible First Graders!

My students need some Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats, Privacy Partitions, Flex-Space Giant Comfy Pillows, Calming Colors Soft Seats, and Flex-Space Wobble Cushions.

My Students

My classroom will be abuzz with new first graders! The students at my school each come in with varying backgrounds both culturally and academically. Students come to school with an inquisitive mind ready to be filled with new experiences. My school and neighborhood is very inviting and supportive. Although parents are unable to volunteer due to their many jobs they are always willing to take time to talk about their child's progress and how they can help at home. Students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch due to the economic standings of many of our families.

My Project

Students have been becoming extra wiggly at this time of year. In order to give them flexibility I've been allowing them to move chairs near the carpet so they can focus better. I've researched and admired countless others teachers who have dived into the world of flexible seating.

Feeling this inspiration and the need for change in the classroom I want to try out flexible seating with my first graders!

The benefits of flexible seating are endless: physical health, student choice, comfort, sensory input, and community. Physical health is the biggest reason I want to get into flexible seating. Children need to move. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock bounce and lean which will increase oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength.

We will be using all of these items to give my students the opportunity to try flexible seating during our class time on the rug and during independent work. I'm hoping through flexible seating students will become more focused, more productive, and students will make the right choice for their body.
