Mrs. Piehl from Antioch IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Choice Seating for 4th Graders

Help me give my students wobble chairs for our guided reading table and wobble cushions so they can be comfortable when working on the floor.

My Students

This year I moved to a new school in the district. I'm excited to create a warm inviting space for my students just perfect for learning.

4th graders love having the choice of where they can sit within our classroom.

My students have varying learning styles and flexible seating gives them options of finding out what works best for them and their learning. Some students enjoy sitting at stools at the various tables around my room. Others prefer to sit on the floor and the round wiggle seats would be perfect for those learners. I've found that when given a choice the traditional desk and hard surface chairs that are provided to the students isn't a first choice. Working hard throughout the day, students need to be comfortable. Thank you so much for your support!

My Project

My 4th graders love having the choice of where they sit around our classroom. I've found that students learn best when they are given the choice of where they sit.

We would love some new sturdy wobble chairs for our tables as the ones I purchased from Amazon and IKEA have broken.

Students can sit comfortably on the floor with the wobble cushions.

I know that flexible seating can be costly and I don't have my own personal funds to purchase these items for my students. These items will be used with my current students and students in my future classes.

Please consider making a donation. My students and I thank you!
