Teachers work hard at creating an environment that is conducive to student learning. Flexible seating is becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. You may wonder, what do you mean different types of seating?
In a classroom with flexible seating you will see kids laying on the floor, kids in beanbag chairs, kids on their knees at a table, kids in traditional desks and kids in standing desks. Having all of these options allow kids to wiggle, move and absorb the learning experience more naturally. Here is a more in depth look at why teachers and students and are loving flexible seating and their standing desks.
It is time to purchase new school chairs for your classroom, but the amount of choices available can be overwhelming. To help you decide which will work best for your particular needs, we have provided five essential criteria for you to consider.
Chair Height and Age of Students
Will these chairs be used primarily for Kindergarten classrooms or might they also be used for older children? It is important to consider this question when choosing a chair so that you purchase chairs that the students fit in properly and avoid returns. Chairs are available in several seat heights to accommodate all student ages. A common stack chair may range in sizes of 10″H, 12″H, 14″H, 16″H and 18″H. These heights are measured from the floor to the seat surface. You can follow this rule to measure your existing chairs and order more of the same size, or use the guide below if ordering for the first time. If the chairs are to be used by various age groups, either purchase different sizes to accommodate each age or purchase the chair height made to accommodate the oldest in the group, as it is better for chairs to be too big than too small.
Higher education institutions often pave the way for the rest of educational trends, and one of the latest investments colleges and universities are making is providing active seating options for students.
