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

Flexible Freedom Seats That Help Us Focus

My students need to feel freedom to move and work in a comfortable environment. With flexible seating, students are more focused and therefore more productive.

My Students

These energetic 5th graders attend school in a small, rural, farm community. With a high poverty level, many of my students face multiple challenges both in and out of the classroom. In this environment, a safe, comfortable place to learn is key!

My students work in a tech environment and are learning to dig deeper into their understanding.

They know that my class allows for freedom of choice and self-reflection! Sitting, standing, laying, and working hard go hand in hand.

My Project

With "Flexible Freedom," students are given the choice to select the type of seating they feel will be most beneficial to their learning experience each day. The yoga balls and balance stools will allow us more flexibility to move around and collaborate throughout the day.

Classroom chairs don't provide much comfort, and for many students, the ability to have a choice, the option to rock, bounce, or move is extremely beneficial and even crucial to their ability to focus and learn.

This new seating will expand my student's options while providing an environment of cooperation and learning.

An inability to be still all day should not limit a child's ability to be a successful and accomplished student. If I am able to make a change to our classroom environment that change the academic outcome for my students, then this simple seating solution is a step in the right direction!
