Flexible Seating for First Grade
Ms. Kara Stephen, First Grade Teacher:
"Three reasons why I chose flexible seating:
Flexible seating creates a more comfortable environment to help students do their best learning. They become more independent and enjoy the active learning options provided to them.
Offering changes in positions and movement opportunities throughout the day provides for short bursts of activity and allows the student to perform higher academically and their behavior to be focused on the task at hand. (They want to be learning)
Allowing kids to have some control over where they sit turns them into problem solvers. They are able to identify how they’re feeling and choose what works best for them and what may not be the best choice for them to do their best learning.
Regular chairs are an option for students that prefer them! Flexible seating is allowing my students to develop as active learners in our classroom!”
