Mrs. Wilson from Perry OK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Year Back

My students need flexible seating options! They can sit on the wobble stools, poufs, or in the floor using a lap desk.

My Students

Second graders are full of energy, life and questions! With their minds and bodies constantly on the move, I want to implement flexible seating in my classroom. Every student will not have a traditional desk and chair, rather an assortment of options that they can choose from day to day.

Every student is unique and so are their learning styles.

The same is true for seating arrangements. There will be a few desks, coffee tables, stools, lap desks, and other options where they can choose the learning environment that suits them best.

My Project

My name is Casey and this is my first year back to teaching after a 5 year leave! I am needing a few classroom items, but I also hoping to fully implement flexible seating. My students will have the option of not sitting in a chair at a desk, and this will give us the resources to do just that!

I want my students to feel at home in our classroom, afterall, we end up spending a whole lot of time together over the course of one school year!

A few of the things I have requested are seating options for the students. The file folders with top brass will be used to display student work in our classroom. They will also be bound at the end of the school year for the students to have a memory book from the year. I have requested a large timer so the students will know how much time they have and can begin learning to monitor their time on task. I have also requested white boards and clipboards so the students can work from anywhere in the classroom. We appreciate any contribution we make, and I know my students will love this flexibility in the classroom!
