Goal

For my classroom to be the first full flexible seating classroom at Lakewood Elementary! My students love to wiggle and move throughout our lessons and flexible seating will provide opportunity to all of my students to focus to reach academic gains. Therefore, my goal is to keep my students safe while still allowing them to move in their seat.  

 

What will be done with my students

My students are constantly on the move! Each student will receive a flexible seating option of their choice, so they each can have that range of motion they desire while being safe in the classroom. 

 

Benefits to my students

There are so many benefits to a classroom that has flexible seating, as research as proved. What I want most for my students though is to be able to focus throughout our extended day since they will be able to safely wiggle in their area. With this improvement in focus, student academic growth will occur in our classroom.
