The flexible seating options that I have requested for my class will help my students feel more at home. Children in our low income community often feel unsafe due to neighborhood issues. School is their safe place. Flexible seating will promote collaboration, community, and a commitment to learn creating the ultimate student-centered learning environment. By donating to our project, you will be helping students in my class increase focus and attention, which will lead to greater academic success and authentic learning. The ball chairs will allow my high energy kids to let out energy and focus at the same time. The bean bag chairs will help students who are more reserved to feel comfortable in their learning. The floor seat will enable students to spread out without distracting others. All of these options will allow for easy movement to keep our classroom dynamic and engaging!
