My students need flexible seating options. The Flex-Space Balance Ball will provide students movement as needed. The comfy floor seat will provide another seating option for independent learning.
As an educator of 75 students K-6 students, I am always searching for materials that will captivate, motivate and educate a wide variety of learning styles. I have updated curriculum and classroom resources. Recently, I have started to focus on the physical space for my students.
I need to offer flexible options to meet the learning needs of my students as well as their varied sizes.
These lower, middle class students are not often the focus of school budget discussions and decisions, but comfortable seating options will nevertheless enrich the students' experiences in my class and at such a reasonable cost.
For over 100 years, classrooms have been organized around desks in rows. I have moved away from the 30 desks in rows to tables, but some of my students struggle with sitting at a standard height table. When given the choice, they overwhelmingly prefer to stand at the counter, stand and work on the top of the cubbies, or stretch out on the floor to complete a task, rather than sit at a traditional height table.
With the flexible seating options, my students will not only be able to make a choice of how they learn, but they will be able to simply focus on the task at hand.
The floor chairs and the flex ball seats will help all of my students-students with ADHD and students who have multi-sensory needs. Overall, this will help them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking.
