Our school is an elementary school in Manchester, NH, the state's largest city. We are a Title I school with students from diverse backgrounds. Many of our students speak English as a Second Language. We have a high poverty rate with over half of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. Many of our students come from families who are unable to purchase needed school supplies.
My fifth grade students need flexible seating to help them find their best spot in the classroom to stay focused and productive.
Flexible seating helps students find their best spot in the classroom to stay calm, focused and productive. Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.
Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work.
They may be working with a partner, small group, or independently. The Soft Seats will allow my students to sit in many areas of the classroom. The Soft Seats will also allow my students to gather in one spot for whole group mini lessons.
The Soft Seats are easy to clean. They do not gather dust like a rug would. This benefits students with allergies to dust.
