There’s nothing better than finding great seating options, getting it without spending hours in stores, and better yet, when you can get it in two days!

Top 15 Flexible Seating Finds on Amazon

Deserae’ and I have both been a Flexible Seating classroom for many years now and have gone through many different types of seating and resources. We have seen what students like and what they gravitate towards year after year. We have also troubleshooted many problems that happen in a Flexible Seating classroom. After all of these years, we have created a list of our top 15 Flexible Seating finds on Amazon, so let’s get started!

Top 15 Flexible Seating Finds on Amazon
Bistro Table and Chairs for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Bistro Table and Chairs

What’s not to love about this “Bistro” set up? You feel like you’re sitting at a coffee shop, but you’re in school! Students love grabbing this Flexible Seating option with a friend. We absolutely love the look of this seating option and find ourselves sitting there when the students are at recess!

Tractor Seats for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Tractor Seats

Tractor seats are the perfect stools to roll around the classroom and use at any type of seating! We love that these stools can be used at desks, tables or any other type of work space! The fact that they are so beautiful doesn’t hurt either!

Wobble Stools for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Wobble Stools

Wobble stools are so much fun! We love the fact that they can be used two ways. One side has a wobble side and allows students to move around while working. If they get tired of “wobbling,” they can flip it over and use the sturdy side! Perfect for any type of work space!

Foldable Lap Desks for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Foldable Lap Desk

Foldable lap desks are one of our students’ top picks! They love setting them up together to create their own work space! We love that they are collapsible! These folding lap desks work great with scoop rockers or just for sitting on the floor! They can also be used on top of tables to make a standing desk! If you have Chromebooks or laptops, these are a must!

Futon for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Futon

Are you looking to create a comfortable home-y vibe? Futons are a top pick! The futons are usually one of the first types of seating to be picked in our classrooms. Students love grabbing a clipboard and getting to work. We love getting two of them to create a collaborative space where students feel comfortable working!

Clipboards for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Dry Erase Clipboards

With all the flexible seating options in your classroom, students don’t always have a hard surface to work at.  Our solution has been these dry erase clipboards! WE LOVE THEM! The clipboards are low profile, so they fit easily in the students’ book bins. We love that they have two purposes and that they are a quality product. We also love giving our students a dry erase eraser too!

Book Bins for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Book Bins

Everyone always asks, “Where do your students keeps their books in a Flexible Seating Classroom?” Book bins are the answer! These bright and colorful book bins from Really Good Stuff are quality! We love that our students can grab their bin and take it to their seats too!

Side Tables for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Side Tables

Side tables are one of the most used options in our classrooms. We love that these are lightweight. Students move them around the room throughout the day. They work great next to a couch, with beanbags, or just a quick place to work! If we need to change up the seating or create another space, these side tables are our answer!

Scoop Rockers for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Scoop Rockers

We often get questions if these seats are suitable for our fourth graders. Yes! Students love grabbing these and setting up their own work spaces. They usually grab these and use the foldable lap desks as their hard surface.

Stadium Chairs for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Stadium Chairs

How fun are these stadium seats? Students love working on the floor and grabbing a foldable lap desk to work at. These stadium seats are also great for a low table option. We love that they fold up, so they don’t take up much space. Students just grab and go!

Attendance Board for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Attendance Board

Another question we get often is, “How do you take attendance in a Flexible Seating Classroom?” We use a magnetic board and magnets! We simply number the magnets with student numbers and have students move their magnet as they enter the room. If the number is not moved, we know they’re absent! This is also how we take lunch count and how we know where students are throughout the day. Students simply move their magnets to the different sections that we create on the board.

Brochure Holders for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Brochure Display

Flexible Seating Classrooms get lots of questions. Instead of repeating yourself over and over, we love having Flexible Seating Brochures ready to grab to explain our classroom! We have Flexible Seating Brochures for parents, substitutes and classroom guests ready to grab in this display!

Bean Bags in the Flexible Seating Classroom

Bean Bag Chairs

Who doesn’t love a comfy bean bag? Students love using bean bags at low tales or just grabbing their clipboards and getting to work! They are the perfect spot to curl up and get lost in a book too! We love that this is another movable seating option that students can get creative with and create a space that works best for them!

Convert-a-Bench for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Convert-a-Bench

Is this not the coolest thing you have ever seen? This Convert-a-Bench goes from a bench to a table in seconds! This is perfect for the Flexible Seating Classroom! If you get two, put them side by side to create a picnic table! The possibilities are endless!

Adjustable Desk on Wheels for the Flexible Seating Classroom

Adjustable Desk on Wheels

Anything on wheels is a win in our book! We love moving these tables around for different collaboration purposes. Small group instruction, computer work or just changing up seating options are all reasons to move these tables around!
