Mrs. Hargett from Fort Smith AR is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Alternative Seating Meeting Every Child's Abilities

My students need to wiggle and move safely, like the Learniture Active Learning Chair provides, to help them focus on working and learning.

My Students

Every child holds value. My students are uniquely different in their backgrounds, ethnicity, and learning abilities. They all have their own way of learning, and I love the challenge of discovering how to reach them.

3rd graders minds are so malleable.

I get the chance to not only teach them academics, but also how to be a good kind citizen in our classroom community that is emphatic to their peers. The hope is that they take what they learn outside the four walls of our classroom.

My Project

Every student I have is unique and different in their learning abilities. My students focus increases when they are able to keep their body in motion.

The Active Chair/Stool and Peanut Exercise Ball will allow my most active students to safely move while working and increase their core strength.

The Wobble Seat, Exercise Band, and Stress Ball will give my students that need to fidget or have high anxiety an outlet to do so without disrupting their friends at their table group.

These items that I have listed will allow students movement and will actually bring more peace and focus to my classroom. When their focus increases their confidence and knowledge soars.
