Wiggle-Stand-Sit Flexible Seating

My students need four of the 3 in 1 flexible seats to be able to sit, rock or stand, depending upon their need at a specific moment.

My Students

My 1st graders enter the classroom full of excitement and eagerness to learn. They love to learn, but are so full of energy. Sitting in standard seating all day hinders their learning and increases behavior issues. They need to be able to move, sit on the floor, stand, wobble around...whatever is most comfortable for them, while learning and working together.

They may all come to me eager to learn, but they also come to me with different learning styles.

Currently, my students have access to wobble chairs, stability balls, and wobble cushions. They love it! I have, however, struggled to come up with a way for my students to be able to stand and work effectively. Our tables are too low, so when they stand, they have to bend over to the table, or end up sitting on their knees to write, making it uncomfortable.

My students are members of a low income and high poverty school district. This brings many challenges for them, in school and at home. These challenges may prevent them from achieving their best and even drive the desire to learn out of them. I strive to instill in them a love of learning!

My Project

My students are 6-7 years old with tons of energy. They are in the classroom so much during the day and need a way to learn while having the ability to move. These Vidget 3-in-1 Flexible Seating System will do that for them.

Imagine being able to stay in one spot, but to be able to sit a bit, rock side to side when you get the wiggles, or stand up and have a desk top that is right for you when you can sit no longer.

This is exactly what these 3-in-1 Flexible Seats will do for my students. They can learn and burn up energy at the same time. They can stand and stretch their legs without having to bend way over at a table that is too short for them. They can learn in the way that is best for them.

I have been building my flexible seating classroom for 2 years now, and the only thing really missing is a way for my students to stand comfortably while working. So, the Vidgit 3 in 1 Flexible Seats are the perfect solution for us!
