Alternative Seating: Out With The Old, In With The New
My students need alternative seating options like balance ball chairs, Learniture chairs and portable laptop stands to meet their physical needs in the classroom when working.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students are academically, economically, and culturally diverse. They have a variety of different experiences that add to the diversity in our classroom. Over fifty percent of our students receive free lunch, which is greater than the state average. We are a STEM school and attend ongoing training throughout the year in partnership with the State University. The ongoing training helps us to design and differentiate rigorous lessons and learning sequences that are intended to meet the needs of all learners.
The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students are ready for their new home. I know where everything will go! We need your help in getting everything to our classroom! The portable laptop station stands will allow the students to move around the classroom and complete computer based activities and assignments around the room in their own space. The half moon table and the Learniture chairs will allow for students to work at a shared space station. This is a space where they can collaborate and work on group based projects. The Learniture chairs allow for students to sit in different positions comfortably. This will help increase students' focus and their duration on task. Lastly, the student balance ball chairs allow students to bounce and wiggle a little (or a lot) without disturbing the rest of the class. The donations to this project will help to improve my students' ability to stay on task, stay focused and move around to meet their individual needs and choice. This will help increase student productivity and outcomes. By implementing the alternative seating choice, it provides students with a choice; a chance to choose and determine how they work best without disturbing or intruding on others or their space. I have done extensive research on meeting the needs of all learners in a fully inclusive classroom. This new classroom environment will be sure to help all students feel successful and meet their needs when learning.
