What is Flexible Seating?

Many teachers are moving away from traditional classroom environments and moving toward flexible-seating classroom management to help keep their students more engaged. Schools can provide budgets for this new classroom furniture, or teachers can use donations and/or their own money to purchase these items. The seating arrangements can include beanbag chairs, stability balls, yoga mats, and many more.

Once the seating is introduced with rules enforced, each student should be able to sit wherever they feel comfortable. Teachers can also make assigned seating fun by assigning student groups that get to sit at different seating fixtures at different points of the day. This will help students learn in the best way, and makes learning fun! There is nothing more valuable to a teacher than students that are engaged and ready to learn.
