Mrs. Martinez from Houston TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging All Learners with Flexible Seating

My students need Wobble Chairs, Balance Ball Chairs, and Bouncy Bands for Chairs for flexible seating options to support voice and choice - as well as their engagement.

My Students

The students in my classroom range from 9-11 years old. Each child comes from a different background and their needs vary. However, one thing they all have in common is being part of our classroom family. They appreciate that their personality is unique and that it brings diversity to our classroom. We work toward valuing each other's strengths and lifting each other up by collaborating, setting goals, and celebrating successes.

On our campus, we really strive to encourage young leaders.

By giving students a voice and opportunities to lead, they know that what they do matters!

My Project

These requested Wobble Chairs, Balance Ball Chairs, and Bouncy Bands for Elementary School Chairs will provide my students with durable seating options that support how they learn best. Students can enter the classroom and have a choice in where they will sit and learn each day.

These seating options will promote engagement and make learning fun, whether sitting on a Wobbling Chair, Balance Ball Chair, or moving your feet at a desk on Bouncy Bands.

Movement is natural for children and this project will give students multiple ways to get their wiggles out while staying focused on their work - whether it be independently working or in groups.

(Not to mention that the materials these seats are made out of will make it easier to sanitize at the end of each day!)
