Flexible Seating on a Budget

Flexible seating can be expensive, but there are also many low-cost options available for the classroom. Incorporating flexible seating into your classroom allows students to choose where they work and is often more comfortable than traditional desks and chairs. It's no secret that when students are comfortable, it has a positive impact on their focus and learning. Flexible seating also provides better opportunities for collaborative work. Common options include bean bag chairs, cushions, donut seats, exercise balls, floor pillows, sit spots, stools, stability discs and wobble seats.

Below we have created a list of budget-friendly flexible seating options available on Amazon with our suggestions for teachers. This site is updated daily, but prices and availability are subject to change at any time. As always, happy teaching!
