Ms. P. from Rock Falls IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible and Focused

My students need a variety of seating options to help them create the best learning environment for themselves.

My Students

Students that attend my school come from a variety of backgrounds, which means many of them learn differently.

It is my goal to make my classroom feel like a safe, home-like space that my students enjoy being in.

My students work hard to achieve their personal and school goals. I want to give these students the best opportunity to succeed and provide them with the resources they need to be successful. We focus a lot on small group work which provides my students with the attention and support that they need to succeed.

My Project

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, and because of this, some tend to struggle to remain focused on school. Many of my students have a hard time staying in their seat or keeping "four on the floor".

With this flexible seating, students are encouraged to move in their seats in a safe way.

Children are not meant to sit for very long and I have been working hard to encourage movement in the classroom through brain breaks, STEM activities, and many other activities.

I am looking to get some wobble seats, wobble cushions, and bounce bands. The wobble seats and cushions will allow the kids to rock or "wobble" in their seats. The bounce bands go on students' chairs and allow them to bounce or swing their feet on them. This flexible seating will be the cherry on top to keep students motivated, focused, and moving, all while learning!
