Insights for Kindergarten to Second Grade Classrooms

  • Design lower elementary classes so students move easily from station to station, but furniture stays in place to minimize chaos.

  • Stimulate movement via posture and location changes to optimize focus and release energy.

  • Furnish the room with multiple seating options so students can sit at tables, stand, lounge, kneel, or plop down on the floor during the day.

  • Create ample space for storing personal items and school supplies throughout the room and implement color-coding where appropriate.

  • Consider using more small, individual, adjustable-height tables to provide configuration flexibility long term.
