My students need more options of flexible seating in the classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work at a school where many of our students come from an inner city school setting with the majority of them receiving free or reduced lunches. Many of them come from families and homes that are non traditional.
My students come to my room to feel safe, and secure.
We have built a community around each other, where we support and rely on each other to achieve academic, social, and life goals. We have created a family in my classroom. This year I will be "looping" with my kids, so I will have them again for a second year! This will only create a more secure school family for my students and I.
There have been many studies that have shown the effects that flexible seating has on learning in the classroom. Last year, I wanted to give it a try. I started implementing flexible seating with just a few options. I began with crate seating and wiggle seats.
The increase of student focus was astonishing!
Just by placing a few choices in my classroom gave them options, and the opportunity to move increased their focus and willingness to work. I am moving from second grade to third grade, and I want to continue this innovative aspect in my new classroom.
I know if I add these two new options, the learnature stools and ball seating, to our classroom it will only increase my students' focus and learning. When students are focused you can get them to learn anything. They want to work and they want to do well. It is amazing what children can do when only given the opportunity to move!
