Mrs. Ingram from Gainesville GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating and Fostering a Flexible Environment

My students need flexible seating to not only allow for a more collaborative work space, but also to provide stimulation to help students with sensory issues and those who have ADHD/ADD/ASD.

My Students

My 4th graders are hard-working, curious, and passionate about learning. They are a class of diverse learners of various abilities and backgrounds that thrive best in a flexible environment that provides various opportunities and strategies for learning. I had the opportunity to witness this first hand while they were in 3rd grade.

Whether it is working collaboratively with their peers or independently, I want to be able to create an environment that allows them every opportunity to develop to their full potential.

Teaching at a title one school, inspires me every day to do the very best I can to enrich the lives of those I work with. They are our future and I feel it is my job to ensure their love of learning never ceases.

My Project

In their previous classroom, my students were provided with flexible seating. Their teacher not only noticed a change in their behavior, but also a growth in their learning, a building of community in the classroom, and a pattern of making choices that suit their own individual needs. As they come to my room for 4th grade, I would like to be able to provide them with the same opportunity to learn in an environment that is comfortable, yet appropriate.

Students need to let their wiggles out, lean back, or even flatten out and often when given the opportunity they are able to be more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers.

Many of the items chosen also will help the several students in my room who have been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD/ASD because it will provide stimulation to help students focus and process information.

The choices I have made in flexible seating are not only similar to the types they had before, but are also able to be moved around by the students with ease. Students will be given guidelines for flexible seating and held accountable so that it is not misused or abused.
