One Millsboro school is using flexible seating to help students learn
From laying on the floor to rocking on a stool.
These are some of the flexible seating options scattered throughout the classroom at East Millsboro Elementary that are actually helping students learn.
Flexible seating is getting rid of the traditional classroom of sitting in chairs and desks; giving children other options.
East Millsboro Elementary's fourth grade teacher, Wendy Joseph, has been doing research on the concept of flexible seating.
"We have cushions to sit on the floor with a lower table, we have beach chairs, we have lap desk that they can use if they lay on the ground," Joseph says.
Joseph tells us she's had some sort of flexible seating in her classroom in the past year but this year, she finally decided to add more options to her classroom.
Stepping out of the box of traditional seating, Joseph tells 47 ABC, she has seen positive results.
