Ms. Bailey from Virginia Beach VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bring Flexible Seating to Ms. Bailey's Class

My students need options for flexible seating such as bean bags, wobbly stools and lap desks that help create an inviting environment where their learning can flourish.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a group of active 3rd graders who would benefit from the flexibility of choosing their own seating during independent work time. Providing options for students gives them ownership in choosing the best spot to get their work done, allowing more focus and productivity.

I teach a curriculum that emphasizes collaboration and communication to a group of energetic 3rd graders.

My class is made up of students who are eager to learn and full of energy. Located in the heart of the community, our school provides a wonderful environment for learning and growing.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables or laying on the floor. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component to help with motivation. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their classmates when they are given a choice of where to complete their work.

The wobble chairs, bean bags and lap desks will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The beanbag chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
