Fun Flexible Seating

Help me give my students flexible seating choices -- a new classroom rug and comfy floor seats.

My Students

My students are a diverse group of 2nd graders. They come from different cultures, backgrounds, and different levels of home support. They all have different needs.

What they all have in common is that they love learning.

They enjoy hearing about places they've never been or never heard of, and they also love sharing stories of things near and dear to them, things close to home.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning during independent work time and make the choices that work for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or lying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component to motivating them. I have noticed positive differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The comfy floor seats and rug will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. The seats are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
