Help me give my students more flexible seating options, including stools and wobble chairs.
My second grade students are growing and learning in the same small, tight knit community that I grew up in, and at a school like mine, which inspired me to become a teacher. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet.
They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, and teachers.
They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long successful careers as learners and creators.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, students choose a location in the classroom that works 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, bouncing on the yoga balls that were so generously provided from our last DonorsChoose.org project, sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board, using the box cube seats, or sitting in traditional hardback chairs . 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 when they have flexible seating options.
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 products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble chairs are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desks and 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!
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even smarter!
