My students need flexibility in where they sit. Having the Flex Space Comfy Floor Seat allows them to have flexibility in where and what they sit on.

Students today are more active than in the past. They have a hard time sitting still for long periods of time. This often makes school difficult for them.
Implementing brain breaks, doing cross body exercises, and having PE daily helps, but they are not enough.
Students today need to be able to sit and move at the same time. This allows them to focus their energy on their learning instead of on their movement.
Many of my students rock in their chairs, tip backwards or find other ways to move while seated. If they had different seating options, I believe this would allow them needed variety and help them to focus on their learning.
My students are always moving to the floor to play games, complete work, or create projects. Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats will make a difference because students can use them to work at a low table or on a clipboard, without having to sit on the floor.
Flexibility in seat choice puts students in charge of where they learn.
When they are comfortable in their environment, learning comes naturally. Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats will allow students to sit, in small groups to work or sit by themselves, in an upright position. When students are allowed to work comfortably they will be more likely to produce their best work.
