Classrooms today look a little different than they did when I was a kid. Teachers offer alternative seating to help kids stay focused.

These work well for elementary-aged classrooms.
Along the same lines as alternate seating, a balance ball is a great option.
Your teacher will love to be able to offer this to kids with high energy levels. It has 5 legs to help keep the kiddos sturdy. This seat will also help your kids stay focused and concentrate by helping get the wiggles out.
This type of seating will help ensure healthy posture which will increase blood flow to the brain.
Teachers will love having a new item in the classroom that kids can spend time with that counts as STEM activity.
