Flexible Seating – We are in the process of making our classroom a flexible seating classroom! Students are able to select the seating style that works best for them. Some desk are raised to standing height, some are lowered so students may sit on the floor, and some students have ball chairs or wiggle seats. With our Tiger Trot top fundraising winnings, I was able to purchase some of these materials for our classroom. However, we need more options to truly make our classroom a flexible seating environment. I have created an Amazon wish list for items that we are looking to have in our classroom. Thanks your support! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2V220XYTE89WQ
