Alternative seating in my classroom!

Getting Started

I did a lot or research and found a lot of benefits to stability balls. (If you would like to read the articles comment below and I will link them for you.) However, at the time I didn't see a whole lot of sites that were from teachers about how they did alternative seating or implemented the new seating in their classroom! I decided to go with stability balls, a carpet with bench, stools at a taller table, a lower table with cushions, standing desks, and one table of regular chairs. I was…

Someone asked me how I roll out alternative seating at the beginning of the school year. Great question! Let me share my top tips on introducing and implementing alternative seating starting the first day of school.

How to Roll Out Student Work Spaces When You Do Alternative Seating

Someone asked me how I roll out alternative seating at the beginning of the school year. Great question! Let me share my top tips on introducing and implementing alternative seating starting the first day of school. Let me also remind you that when I first started because I got rid of my teacher desk, that I practiced on my kinders at the end of a school year, with 3 weeks left to go.

Edited update Aug 2012- Hello Pinterest Readers! This post is two years old, but has been revived thanks to Pinterest. I do not have any kind of "editable template." it was simply typed in a word document and printed on my home printer. I used a Dj inkers font, not even sure what it was called. Also, I punched them out with a tag punch, which you can order from me using the link at the bottom of this post! Thanks! I wanted to make my kids a little something to welcome them back to school…
