Mrs. Hartleb from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Comfort in Beanbags!

My students need bean bag seating for comfort. Students are more relaxed and more focused when they are comfortable.

My Students

This is my second year teaching. I received my BA in Education and M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education. Today I am teaching as a Kindergarten teacher.

I teach at a Title I school in North Carolina where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students LOVE to move, and they love to read! My goal is to get flexible seating. I have learned what the students love within the classroom and during guided reading that keeps their attention is being comfortable in the classroom with a reading buddy and seating.

My Project

Flex Seating Benefits Grows. According to research, the flexible-seating movement is fostering a growing list of physical, emotional and academic benefits:

Choice.

Students learn best when they have some control over their environment.

Community. Students learn to take turns and share supplies.

Collaboration. Students can easily pair up or work in groups.

Movement. Students can sit, kneel, wiggle, lean, roll, etc., and release excess energy while building core strength.

Comfort. Comfortable students are more relaxed and more focused.

Sensory Input. Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch.

Motivation. Students are motivated to earn and keep their favorite spots.
