  1. Hi, I'm planning on doing the same dog theme by School Girl Style for my Kindergarten class next year :) Do you only use the milkcrates as seats for the children? I love the idea of that, but do they ever get tired of not having a back to the seat?

    1. Hi! They love their seats, but truthfully they don't spend very much time in them. I am a huge believer in allowing students to learn where they learn best. Some children choose to sit at tables, but I'm finding most prefer to lay on the floor using a work rug and clipboard. I always relate the seats to stability balls that also don't have back rests. I have yet to have a student complain. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Hi Kayla!

      I have recently started following you on twitter and am so excited about alternative seating. However, I want to be prepared in starting this in my classroom. Are there any tips that you think are most important in making this change in a classroom? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  10. Hi,

    I'm starting flexible seating with my first graders in August. At the beginning of the year, do you introduce all the seating options at once or do you introduce a few at a time? I'm trying to figure out what my first day and first week will look like. Thanks!

  11. Hi! Thanks for sharing pics of your room. I'm hoping to do flexible seating in my k classroom this year. I have the options and setup down, but need advice for management and expectations. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

  12. Hi! I started using flexible seating late in the year in my first grade classroom last year and was looking forward to jumping into it this year. I've encountered a snag and hoped for some advice from you. I have 1 student with an IEP and another with a 504 plan. Both state specifically that the student be seated preferentially up front and within close proximity of the teacher and the smart board ( as if the teacher really sits down!). I'm wondering if you've ever encountered a similar situation while using flexible seating, and hoping for your advice.
    Thanks!!

  13. I love your new classroom! You did such a great job with it!! We have several of the same pics from Hobby Lobby. :)

  14. Can you tell me more about how you present your lessons? I teach older kids 5th and 6th and I want to upgrade my seating plan but I feel like my need to know more about presenting lessons leaves me from moving forward with a new seating plan.

  15. I would also love to know how you made those large letters for Everyone's a teacher Everyone's a learner. I bought your TPT phrases and was hoping I'd see the format like you have in your pictures.
