Multiple Seating Options for Multiage Students on the Move
Help me give my students flexible seating options! This will be so helpful so they can quickly move around the classroom for flexible and collaborative groupings or independent work.
We will have a classroom of curious, self-directed, engaged and enthusiastic third and fourth-grade students. This classroom will be a multiage classroom where inquiry will guide all of our learning!
We will have flexible seating to allow for movement, collaboration across different groups, independent work and to create a natural and more authentic learning environment that will meet everyone's needs.
We will have a mix of eight, nine and ten-year-olds who will work across several different groups and partnerships throughout the day. These students need to be able to sit on the floor comfortably, wiggle in their seats and easily pick up stools to move across the room to work in collaborative groups.
Time for book groups? Grab a stool and meet with your group! Time for a math lesson? Grab your seating of choice and meet at the carpet! Time for independent writing? Choose where you're most comfortable and where you can get your best work done!
Students need the ability to make seating choices based on their needs- whether it's a quiet spot in the corner or sitting with other students for collaborative work!
Traditional classroom chairs are cumbersome, heavy and really not comfortable. Stools and floor cushions will allow students to change their location easily as we transition through our inquiry work throughout the day.
