Ms. Jackson from Waterford MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible First Graders

My students need flexible seating options; like wobble stools, lap desks, foot bands and cushions that allow them to focus their energy on learning in a positive way.

My Students

I am so lucky to teach a diverse group of first grade friends. First graders are full of imagination and energy. My friends are excited and eager to learn new things each day. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and present different learning styles.

My first graders benefit from a strong classroom community that fits their individual needs.

The classroom environment is key to a success day of learning. Giving a student a choice in their learning environment helps foster independence and responsibility at a young age. Thank you for taking the time to read about my students.

My Project

Studies shows that by giving students the choice to sit in comfortable flexible seating greatly enhances their focus. With a fulfilled project, my classroom environment would improve and students would become more responsible for their learning.

I would be able to offer my students a variety of seating options based on specific learning need.

Students would be able to use wobble stools, pillows, lap desks and seat cushions to help their focus in our classroom. These options will allow them to become more comfortable, find a responsible working space and get the most out of our work times and classroom activities.
