My students are WONDERFUL. I teach in a self-contained classroom for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. The program is brand new to our district this year! It is difficult for my students to sit in traditional chairs for extended periods of time. Allowing them the choice of where to sit, will allow them to take charge of their education and LEARN!
My students would benefit from choices on where to sit and how to complete their work. Sitting in one spot all day is tiring, even for adults! All of my students have a range of needs that require movement throughout the day in order to keep them focused and engaged.
Flexible seating offers them this as well as creating a sense of community and allowing them to take ownership of their learning.
They will have the choice of a wobble chair or a floor seat to get their wiggles out and be able to focus as the task on hand. Please help keep my students engaged and on task by allowing them to have choices!
