Help me give my students flexible seating options to help them pay attention better.
My 4th-grade students have a family mentality and love to work in groups together. They are caring and kind and work really hard to be the top class in the school. We are so thankful to get to spend each day with each other learning, loving, and laughing together. My class is full of 22 young and eager minds who love technology, and are working on developing their writing skills for the STAAR test. They are so excited to have technology at their fingertips.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works best for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing 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.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
The balance ball and wobble chairs that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at a desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They 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!
