Focusing on Flexible Seating

Help me give my students more options for flexible seating to help them stay focused and motivated to learn!

My Students

My students are high energy kids who love to talk, discuss, and participate in hands on activities. At times, it can be hard for them to sit comfortably in a chair all day while remaining engaged and focused. When it comes time for a brain break, my class quickly leads a game of "Ship Captain," where they are found running around, playing, and laughing together. It is quite the scene to watch! At times, I find my students sitting or laying on the floor instead of their desks. I want to provide my students with options for flexible seating to allow them choices on how they want to approach their learning for that day.

My Project

I would like to provide my students with many options of seating in our classroom. Right now, we have 20 chairs and 4 yoga balls. By giving more options of seating, like stools, floor cushions, and more yoga balls, students will make a choice on how they will learn for the day.

Flexible seating will help students remain engaged throughout the school day.

Student centered learning is important, and picking out a place to sit can make all the difference. Students often complain of sitting in a chair all day, so seating options will provide them with choices and motivate them to learn.
