Flexible Seating and Alternative Classroom Seating

Is it time for flexible seating for your classroom? Flexible Seating and Alternative Classroom Seating on a Budget! 

Alternative or flexible seating can increase student engagement, help students focus, increase students' enjoyment of learning, and motivate your "opt-out" or "won't" students to jump into the learning with gusto. 

The problem is most teachers including me have no school budget to buy fancy ball chairs, standing desks or other fun cool furniture that would give me more flexible seating options! 

My flexible seating for under 100 dollars:
  • Turn my standard public school tables into floor seating or regency seating. Cost Free
  • Used outdoor seat cushions and pillows for floor seating cushions. Big lots 50% off Summer clearance and a 20% off Friends and Family coupon: Cost $98 
  • Donated couch. Cost Free
  • The creative interior design of my room. Cost Free
