Flexible Seating

Our Language Arts classroom set employs the concept of Flexible Seating. This means that students make a daily choice about where to sit in our classroom so that their best learning can occur.

Why Flexible Seating?

  • Students are in charge of making positive choices for their learning.
  • Students are motivated by having the power to choose.
  • Students are engaged in their work for longer periods of time.
  • More classroom space for students to move and collaborate.
  • Students are more comfortable, which leads to increased focus.

What Flexible Seating looks like:

  • Students standing at tall tables
  • Students sitting on the floor
  • Students using yoga balls
  • Students spreading out on yoga mats
  • Students sittting on business chairs
  • Students working under tables
