My students need more options in our classroom for flexible seating.
The students in my classroom are energetic, creative, bright, and very capable. With the right opportunities for each child, students are able to meet and exceed their potential. Many of my students need to move to do their best learning. Desks and chairs are uncomfortable and out of date with our understanding of how many children, and even adults, learn. How can we expect students to learn all they can when they are stuck in their hard, plastic chairs all day?
This year I launched flexible seating in my first grade classroom.
(Currently, I have four crate chairs, two yoga balls, six scoop chairs, 2 doughnut balls and a few rubber discs.) The students LOVE what I have and are thriving. They are engaged and love choosing a work space that works best for them. I’d love to have enough seating options for ALL 26 my students to have flexible seating choices. I just can't afford to do it all on my own.)
As a teacher, I strive to provide an environment where ALL of my students can learn. Flexible seating has made a huge difference in my students learning this year. It allows students choice and empowers them to take charge of their learning.
Adding the Stability Chair, Doughnut Chair and stools will allow my students to better complete independent work by having the choice to move while in a stationary position.
Many of my students have a hard time sitting still and staying in their seats. This often leads to behavior issues and less time being on task. These seating options will provide more of my students the ability to move without getting up out of their seats.
Sitting at a desk all day on a hard plastic chair can be boring, non-stimulating and uncomfortable. The flexible seating items listed below will provide my students with more comfortable seating options. This will allow them to stay engaged longer in lesson and group work. Seating choices like this will also help students stay focused and process information because they are comfortable.
