Sitting at Attention: Alternative Seating in Kindergarten

My students need stools and stability discs to improve their learning environment. The stools and discs would provide alternative and portable seating.

My Students

Kindergarten is the first school experience for many of my students. They are so excited to come to school and learn new things!

My school has students from all over the world.

I've had students from Russia, Puerto Rico, Columbia, Mexico, Vietnam, Romania, and so many more places. I can't count the number of times parents have told me they came to our country so their kids could get a good education. My students and I are both lucky enough to be in an environment with students and teachers of many different backgrounds, abilities, needs, and advantages. My goal is to supply my students with the tools they need to succeed in my classroom.

My Project

My students need multiple seating options in order to fully engage with their learning. The stools provide several advantages for my students. First, many of my kindergartners are not tall enough to comfortably reach the table when doing their work. Those students end up having to stand in order to complete their tasks. Standing is great until they get tired. The stools will help all of my students to better reach the tables in our classroom. They will also allow my students to swing their legs and wiggle a bit as they work without creating noise on the floor.

Students love to wiggle while they work!

If they are moving, they are keeping their brains alert. The stability discs will be used in several ways. We have a low table in our classroom that cannot be used with chairs. The discs will give the kids a seat that creates both comfort and the ability to wiggle within their space. The best part about them is that they are portable! Any student can use them where needed, such as on the floor, in a chair, or at the carpet. Alternative seating will help to foster a fun and engaging environment for all of my learners!
