Mrs. Britton from Strasburg VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Comfy Spot to Curl Up and Learn

My students need bean bag chairs and a rug to create a comfy place on the floor to learn.

My Students

Funding this project will help create an active learning math classroom for approximately 60 seventh grade math students. Flexible seating increases student engagement which is directly correlated with increasing student learning.

Flexible seating/active classrooms have many benefits including choice, physical health, comfort, community, collaboration, commitment to learning, communication, sensory input, and fun.

Flexible seating gives students the outlet to fidget as needed while remaining focused on learning and not disrupting others. Flexible seating also gives students more freedom of choice which allows them to be more invested in their learning.

My Project

I have requested two bean bag chairs and a rug for my classroom. These will serve as a comfortable alternative to children who would like to sit on the floor. This project goes in conjunction with other projects that I have already funded. This project is an alternative option for students who prefer to sit on the floor. I already have obtained gaming chairs to also go on the rug and I will be purchasing lap desks to go with each floor seating option. I think students will like the idea of getting off of their feet and curling up in something while learning!
