Mrs. Terrell from Mound Valley KS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fidget While You Learn!

My students need bitty bottom cushions and bouncy bands for when they choose to sit in a traditional chair in my new flexible seating classroom.

My Students

I teach in a low socioeconomic community. A large percentage of our students receive free/ reduced meals. The families are extremely involved in their children's learning making my job so much easier. Our community is so small that we have to bring the opportunities to them. The students walk in to my class each day full of wonder. I strive each day to show them that someone does care about them. They are looking forward to what DonorsChoose can help provide for them!

My Project

My students have been fortunate enough to be a part of a new way of learning through a flexible seating classroom, however not all students learn best while sitting on the floor. I did some research and found a more comfortable way to get their work done while sitting in a traditional, hard seat. With these bitty bottom ball filled seat cushions, their bottoms will be thankful! The fidget bouncy bands are a way to keep their feet occupied while allowing their minds more freedom to think. Let's face it, middle schoolers today are used to lounging. I am hopeful that through these new additions to my classroom, I will meet the needs of ALL of my students!
