Flexible Seating Discussion Booklet

 Flexible seating is sweeping through schools across the country.  If you're not familiar with flexible seating, imagine a classroom without desks!  Desks are being replaced with more comfortable seating options such as stability balls, wobble stools, yoga mats, crate seats, and wiggle seats.  What is great about this classroom design is that it is student-centered.  Students have the ability to choose to sit where they are most comfortable and work the best.  This arrangement has increased engagement, focus, and decreased behavior problems because 1) students love choice, 2) these seating tools give kids the freedom to move and wiggle, and 3) the seats are much more comfortable than the traditional hard chairs. Win, win!

If you are looking to incorporate flexible seating into your classroom and would like your students to be more engaged during your discussion, I have created a Flexible Seating Discussion Booklet that will keep them focused.  It includes writing and drawing prompts, and checklists for them to remember key points.
