My students are extremely bright and love to be up and around the classroom. It is hard for us to stay in our hard, plastic chairs behind a desk all day when our bodies need a chance to wiggle. We are laying or sitting on the floor, using our chairs as desks, and working at various tables around the room during a good portion of our day. But, I want more than that for my students. I can envision them sitting on the requested balance balls, balance cushions, and bouncy bands to help them to better concentrate on the task at hand. My goal is that every child succeeds to their highest potential. I believe that this can be met if we have less of a traditional style classroom and more of a flexible seating environment. The donations to this project will help my students who can't control their wiggles be able to concentrate for longer periods of time. We will use these items to aide us in becoming better, stronger learners. As a teacher, I have done research on "Flexible Seating" in the classroom and I am amazed at how well students respond. Students become comfortable in their learning environment and typically have a better outlook on school in general.
