Mr. Godman from Braddock Hill PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating Flexible Seating Options Within the Classroom

My students need wobble chairs, lap desks, and stools that will allow them to fidget and concentrate on their work, easily move them around the room, and allow them to use what works best!

My Students

Hello! I am the teacher of 2nd grade students at an urban elementary charter school in Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh) where all students receive a free lunch. My class is self-contained, meaning they spend most of the day in our classroom. Students focus on reading, math, writing workshop, science, and social studies all at different learning levels.

My second grade students come to school everyday with a wonderful heart and an awesome outlook on learning!

Seeing how learning opportunities can open the doors of possibilities to my students is an indescribable feeling!

My Project

Imagine being in a classroom all day and having a variety of places to sit and work more comfortably. You see a variety of places to sit and work, and students who are actively engaged in reading/writing comfortably. This is my vision for my classroom.

I would love to give my students the comfortable and inviting classroom they deserve.

The current curriculum will allow them to work more independently and in small groups. The students love to choose where they want to sit during their independent time.

However, students currently just work at desks throughout the day on metal chairs. I am moving towards flexible seating that will give them more options and meet their individual learning needs. I will use the stools, discs, and lap desks to provide the comfort and active learning they seek. In doing so, they will be even more engaged and focused on their learning.

A body as rest stays at rest. A body in our new activate seating will stay engaged. A student that has more options of where to sit will feel at home. I look forward to giving my students the opportunity the make moving part of learning!
