Ms. Mckenzie from Kansas City MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Completely Flexible Seating Classroom

My students need exercise balls, clipboards, and wobble chairs to give them a choice in where they work and the ability to move around.

My Students

As a departmentalized 4th grade we do ELA and Social Studies in my room, this gives us so much time for collaboration in groups and free range movement around our room to get our creative juices flowing!! My students are kind, caring and striving to get their hands on different activities.

Our students work harder and smarter when they are comfortable, rather than sitting at their desks!

Having a choice in where they do their work, only makes them more attentive and ready to focus.

My Project

As a first year teacher I gathered what I could to have flexible seating in my classroom. Teaching reading and social studies, I feel like it is necessary that they have room to get comfortable while they work. Along with working comfortably, it is important that their seating arrangements make working together a priority. With these stools, we will be able to get tables in the classroom that effectively help collaboration. The exercise balls will keep my most energetic students focused, and the clipboards will allow the students to work around the classroom at any time.

My students need these pieces of furniture, to transform our classroom into a comfortable working environment.

When they are able to make the decisions of where and by whom they are working, they're learning to make decisions that benefit them socially and academically.
