Flexible Seating Options

As a fifth grade team we have noticed that students have individual needs when it comes to academic focus and one way to address this is with flexible seating options. This year we would like to give our students more choices when it comes to seating. For those of you who would like to contribute to this goal, please see the approved flexible seating options listed below.

Immediate benefits of flexible seating:

*increased motivation and engagement

*creating a better oxygen flow to the brain

*improving core strength and overall posture

*improving metabolism and using up excess energy

We know that physical activity is linked to higher academic performance, better health, and improved behavior so let’s make this happen for our students! (These links can also be found on our class websites)
