Flexible Seating Helps Students Wiggle While They Work
Students in Sheremy Haas’ classroom don’t work in rows of desks with chairs. Many don’t sit in chairs at all.
The first-grade Harvey Dunn Elementary School teacher encourages choice in where her students sit. Some find cushions on the floor. Others sit on yoga balls or wobble chairs, hard plastic stools shaped like empty spools of thread that tip gently side to side and require both feet to stay firmly planted on the ground.
