I teach in a military town and I have a classroom full of the most lively and energetic third graders you'll ever meet! They have a passion for learning and want to succeed and do their very, very best! Currently, in my classroom, I have standard desks with flexible seating at each desk; however, I still have regular chairs at their small group station. I have many students who fidget so the chairs do not serve them well. They have a hard time focusing and staying on task. I believe that with the modified seating, they will be able to focus and will be more engaged and excited to learn!
The stools and wobble cushions will help make a positive difference in my students' learning by helping them focus in small group. While sitting in regular chairs, they slouch and get very tired. Flexible seating all over the classroom will help them stay energized and focused instead of disengaged.
With the stools and wobble cushions, every seat in my classroom will be a flexible seating option.
My students will be able to share with each other and choose which seating option will best benefit them and meet their needs for that particular day. I know they will flourish and meet their goals just by being able to be better focused!
