I have 26 very active students. My class is student centered and we move around the classroom on a daily basis. I have opened up my classroom the past 2 years to accommodate a flexible seating model.
My students are able to choose where they sit so they can work in an area that is most comfortable for them to accomplish their task at hand.
My students love to pick seating that is best for them. Having multiple options gives them the freedom to pick what works best for each student.
Research has shown that when students are given a flexible seating choice in the classroom productivity will improve. I have seen this improvement in the last 2 years that I have been implementing the flexible seating options in my classroom.
Wobble chairs are a perfect choice for students who need to move and be productive at the same time.
They are able to move their chairs in a specific area and focus on the task they are working on at the same time.
Mats and wobble pillows are also a great option for students who like to sit around the room on the floor and work.
