Mrs. Sharman from Tyler TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Come Sit By Me 1

My students need choices for their seating and the CanDo Donut Ball and Trideer Wobble cushion will provide a nice variety for their choosing.

My Students

The majority of my students come from families of generational poverty. They receive free lunches and many participate in a local backpack program that provides food and snacks for them to take home for the weekend. They don’t get to enjoy a lot of privileges.

The majority of my students are eager to learn and come to me with an excitement to explore many different topics of interest and I want to provide a more engaging, student centered classroom.

They would rather be at school learning than anywhere else.

They need a chance to experience and enjoy some of the privileges many students may experience at other schools. I hope to provide them with the warmest most engaging classroom with a variety of academic experiences.

My Project

Flexible seating encourages students to find the most comfortable place to stay calm and on-task. It allows them to take turns sitting in different locations in the classroom on different seating options.

Students that wobble, bounce, or rock have more alert minds and stay more focused with an increase of oxygen and blood flow to the brain.

Physical activity is linked to improved behavior and higher academic performance.

I have used exercise balls for the last two years and feel like my students will benefit greatly from more seating choices. The more comfortable they are, the more engaged and productive they will be.
