My students need flexible seating to help increase engagement in classroom activities, and to provide opportunities to move, even while they're working.

My Students

I teach 5th grade in a small public school in a rural area. The students come from a variety of social and economic backgrounds and are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite all of the challenges they face, I am looking to keep a smile on their faces and let my students use their imaginations and have a meaningful learning experience. They are curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

They are fearless when it comes to technology and, as children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

Bounce Ball chairs and floor seating will allow my students to MOVE, which will definitely help them focus and remain on task. Lap desks and floor seating will provide even more options!

Research shows that flexible seating, and providing choice to the students, increases engagement and lessens the number of classroom disruptions.

For students, this will provide them ample opportunity to wiggle and move as they need to, while still allowing them to remain on task.

It is difficult to remember, at times, that we place high demands on young children. Providing them with many things to help make our expectations as developmentally appropriate as possible can only help them become more successful.
