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

Comfy Classroom Seating Choices!

My students need more flexible seating options to provide choice and comfort in the classroom. Wobble chairs, pillows, bean bags, and floor cushions would give my students the chance to be more active and engaged!

My Students

The students in my classroom at GES in rural Illinois are amazing, energetic, unique individuals. Each day they strive to do their best despite challenges they may face inside and outside of the classroom. I have realized the need to transform the seating in my classroom to provide work spaces that are comfortable to them and allow my students to work to their highest level. Many families cannot provide these materials due to low income jobs or single parent households.

My Project

Flexible seating has been proven to engage more students in their learning because it provides comfort in the classroom. Many students have great difficulty sitting in a traditional classroom chair. Flexible seating will allow my students to focus, perform better, and improve behavior. Wobble chairs, pillows, bean bags, and floor cushions will help my classroom tremendously because my students will have more choices to find a comfortable seat to work with partners or in small groups, to complete work, to do STEAM bins, or read a book, etc. It will also allow them to exert excess energy by giving them opportunities for movement. Students are much different than they were many years ago, so my classroom should be also!
