Students today are more active than in the past. They have a hard time sitting still for long periods of time. This often makes school difficult for them.
Implementing brain breaks, doing cross body exercises, and having PE daily helps, but they are not enough.
Students today need to be able to sit and move at the same time. This allows them to focus their energy on their learning instead of on their movement.
Many of my students rock in their chairs, tip backwards or find other ways to move while seated. If they had different seating options, I believe this would allow them needed variety and help them to focus on their learning.
Students in my class have the opportunity to sit and work anywhere. We are requesting four Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats so that they can sit on the floor and be just as comfortable as in a chair at a desk. We even have a low table for them to work at while sitting on the floor.
Students that have the option to sit at a table, on the floor, in a chair or on a pillow feel in control of their learning.
With the Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seat, deciding where to sit will be the hardest part of their day! Floor chairs will make learning fun!
