My Students

We have a group of diverse, fifth grade students! Our team is an ICT (integrated Co-Teaching) Team. Many of our students are special education students as well as students to whom English is a new language. We aim to provide a safe and encouraging learning environment.

Bringing flexible seating into my classroom so my students' need to move and wiggle doesn't get in the way of their learning.

We want our students to have more comfortable seating and options to sit on something other than the normal classroom chair. Sitting still in a static seat all day is challenging at best for the majority of us, and this becomes even more true when looking at a classroom full of students who are still growing and developing. Flexible seating gives students the option to choose a seat that works best for them and keeps them engaged while minimizing disruptions to other students. Flexible seating would benefit my students in helping them not only sit more comfortably but help maintain focus. Flexible seating encourages students to share their space and supplies rather than be territorial over their areas. Social and emotional skills are also taught through flexible seating options.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
