School Rocking Chairs

Virco rocking chairs are a game-changer. A child’s attention, focus, and eagerness to learn in the classroom make the difference between a child who does poorly in academics and one who excels. This is why it’s important to find innovative ways to improve how a child learns. Let’s take a look at why a number of classrooms are switching to rocking chairs and why many teachers will never go back to regular chairs again.

Focus

Hard seats can cause an issue for focus because they don’t move, and they’re uncomfortable. The issue with a chair’s lack of movement creates a hard surface that does not flow naturally with the body. This is particularly true for younger kids who need regular movement.

When a child is free to move, they can focus on lessons rather than how uncomfortable a seat is. That’s why we recommend a chair like the Virco ZROCK13 – Zuma 13″ Rocker.

Energy

Children are having to spend more time sitting than they have in the past. Parents have options for movement in the workplace, but kids have been greatly inhibited in the classroom. Not only are we experiencing problems as a society due to this issue, but children are having a harder time in the classroom from not being able to move around.

Beyond comfort, kids have an excessive amount of energy that needs to be let out at regular amounts of time. However, sitting too long creates issues as well. Movement is needed for blood flow, which is essential for energy and brain activity.

Not only do kids need to get their wiggles out, but they need movement to maintain the amount of energy they have throughout the day and to experience good health. A lack of movement all day impedes learning. Rocking chairs help the learning process because it allows kids to move around in a safe way.

Safety And Comfort

The Virco Zuma rocking chair provides a safe way to rock in a chair. Kids typically like to tip in their chairs, which isn’t safe. The Virco rocking chair has a stopper to prevent children from rocking too far in their seats. The ergonomic design of each rocking chair safely cradles children to allow them to move freely. Each rocking chair encourages better posture as well. Children can sit firmly in their seats, without leaning over, as they rock in their seats.

Choosing the Right Rocking Chairs For Your Classroom

You too can have rocking chairs that simultaneously produce a calming, yet activating, an effect that promotes focus and happy children. You have a wide selection of rocking chairs to choose from. Choose a variety of colors to create a fun look for your classroom, or choose a color to match the rest of the decor. You have several shades of blue and green to choose from, along with black, yellow, red, and other colors.

In addition, you have a couple of models to choose from, regarding rocking chairs. You can opt for the standard height with a Virco ANFLROCK15 – Analogy Series Floor Rocker. Rockers encourage healthy movement from students. The black-padded cushion lends to the student’s comfort when they sit.
