Mrs. Talavera from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Learners Need Flexible Seating to Help Them Succeed!

My Students

The students in my class are excited learners who need to move and explore to get their minds absorbed in learning. They are hands-on learners who attain knowledge when they are actively engaged in the curriculum. This year my school is adding flexible seating so our students can choose the best way to keep their bodies and brains propelling towards success. I hope to give them what they need by adding several seating options into my classroom so they can find what they need to be successful learners. I am looking forward to my new group of students and how we can all learn and grow!

My Project

Every child learns in a different way, and through flexible seating, each student will have a choice of how/where to sit when working in the classroom. These materials will help them learn and grow, because they have chosen a seat which feels comfortable and engages their learning. When students are comfortable in the classroom, magic happens! The balance balls help those students who need to move while learning, while the lap desks will be beneficial for those students choosing to do work on the floor. The canvas tripod chairs are a more comfortable option for those children who may not want to sit in a traditional classroom chair.

My students will be given an option of where they want to sit each day, and when a child is given the opportunity to choose, it will keep them engaged and focused!

I am creating several areas around my classroom to serve the needs of my students, and this will encourage collaboration and teamwork throughout the year. Flexible seating respects each child's unique needs and sets them up for success in the classroom!
