My students need Wobble Chairs so they can move while their mind is expanding. They need ball chairs so they can bounce while creating. They deserve the right to move while learning!
My students are the best and the brightest! We are all unique and learn in many different ways. One thing that I have noticed is the level of engagement when a student gets to sit in my orange fancy chair, our wobbly chair, or on an exercise ball. Because we learn in so many different ways, I believe that all my students would benefit from flexible seating around the classroom. Showing my students that they can have a choice in where they sit and keeping movement going for those who need constant movement, gives them encouragement and motivation to do their very best daily.
Research has shown that when students use their bodies in the learning process, it can have a big effect, even if it seems silly or unconnected to the learning goal at hand. Flexible seating in my classroom will encourage students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused and productive. These seating options allow them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. Please help me to get my students flexible seating to increase the best chance for learning in 2nd grade!
