Mrs. Anzevino from Warren OH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Choosing My Seat for Success

My students need flexible seating choices such as stand up student desks, balance ball chairs and wobble stools which will allow for greater concentration and focus when learning.

My Students

I teach Kindergarten students in a large urban school system that includes five different schools, including one high school and four PK-8 buildings. I teach in a dynamic PK-8 building filled with hardworking, innovative staff members, enthusiastic students and supportive administrative leaders. There are approximately 1,200 students in my school that live in the Northeastern portion of the city. It is the largest of the four PK-8 buildings in the city. 42% of the enrollment of our student body are minority students. A balanced literacy framework and a conceptually based math program are provided as well as a wide range of learning opportunities.

Specifically, I teach students in an all-day Kindergarten classroom.

My classroom is a safe environment where my 27 students can thrive and learn through various activities such as movement, songs, books and interacting with their peers. Our school district reports almost 98% of our students are economically disadvantaged. I am depended on to help them learn what they need to know. I am committed to them and understand that they need to be provided with school materials but also help with their basic needs being met.

My Project

From my classroom experience, I have found that Kindergarten students enjoy movement and choice. Sitting in one spot for a large amount of time can prove difficult for some and their focus on learning can wander. Currently at our Library Center I have four scoop chairs and they are always occupied. The students seem to be calmer and more focused when in the chairs. The flexible seating options that I have chosen for this project such as the wobble stools, balance ball chairs, stand up student desks and sit spots will help more students to have a choice that helps makes them the most comfortable and focused in our classroom. During reading meetings, students will be able to choose the best fit seating option for them, helping them to better focus on reading strategies that are being taught. These resources will also be helpful to students during our whole group literacy lessons that are primarily taught on the carpet.

These flexible seating options will be used all throughout our school day and will be accessible to all.

The sit spots will be used during our large group areas and the different colors will help me with classroom management plans as students can change spots in different areas of the classroom. The fidget bands will be added to students chairs to help them if they feel the need for body movement. Most kindergarten aged students tend to be in motion more of the time than they are still. No two students are exactly the same and this definitely holds true when it comes to learning and what makes a students the most comfortable during their school day.
