Flexible Seating

You may have noticed that our classroom space looks a little bit different than most classrooms!  That's because we are a flexible seating classroom!

What that means is that students get to choose where to sit and work throughout the day in our classroom.  There are a variety of choices for them, from traditional table spots to stools to scoop chairs on the carpet.  Students will learn how to choose a spot where they are comfortable and can do their best work.  

Having a flexible seating classroom allows students to move more throughout the day and develop self-awareness about making good choices for themselves as learners.  Flexible seating is a great way to build students' independence and respect their learning needs.
