Mrs. Frigiola from Bayonne NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfy Bottoms Make for Strong Tops

My students need flexible seating options in the classroom and wobble chairs, cushions, and balance ball seats will help meet individual student needs, impact how they learn, and improve the quality of work.

My Students

Our school prides itself on student diversity. Each child in my classroom is eager to learn, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We use a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met. This year I want to incorporate alternative seating into the classroom, so students can have seating options that allow them to be comfortable while learning.

My students are an incredible group of learners, and I am so excited to watch them grow this school year.

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

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 in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive to their peers when they are given a choice of where to work instead of just sitting at a desk.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble chairs will allow students to sit at a higher table or a desk while allowing some movement for students that just need to get the wiggles out. The floor seats and wobble cushions will allow for comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can even be used on a chair for extra support. The balance ball seats not only provide another seating option but also strengthen the core.

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