Flexible Seating: My Middle School Classroom


Last school year, I began the journey of switching to flexible seating. If you aren’t sure what flexible seating is, or where to begin the prcess, I’d recommend reading this blog post. 

Now that it’s August, the back-to-school season has begun. I’ve been busy this summer, collecting all the furniture needed for my flexible-seating classroom. I’m excited to share the (almost) finished product. Check it out!

    Ok. So I love it. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. One question for you. What happens when you need to “lecture?” I know it’s not the typical teaching style nowadays. I do it not often myself. But, sometimes we (as teachers) need to talk and our kids need to listen and take notes. How does that work for you?


    • Great question! I, also, still do some whole-class mini lessons. From every spot, it is still possible for students to see the board. If I need them to take notes, I have a trash bin full of clipboards for students to use. I also offer students a chance to switch seats to more of a traditional “table” when I know there will be a lot of writing, note-taking, etc. So far, my kids have had no issues just using clipboards. It’s been great!
