Mrs. Perez from Tomball TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Learning Space for the 21st Century Student

My students need 21st century classroom seating that is flexible and comfortable. Big comfy chairs and wobble stools are just a few options I'd like to provide to engage them in enjoyable learning.

My Students

Our school strives to know each student by name, strength and need. We make it a point to focus on what each individual student needs. My 3rd and 4th grade bilingual classroom is a place where I strive to provide a safe and comfortable place for my students to learn. My students are at a critical crossroad in their education where they are transitioning from their native language (Spanish) to English. Some of my students are able to transition fairly easy, however, many struggle with the new language and cannot count on having parental support at home because of this language barrier. My goal is to foster a love for reading and writing by providing numerous opportunities for flexible learning experiences.

My Project

Because I lead a student-centered language arts classroom, my students appreciate a comfortable and exciting learning environment. Any time they are able to sit on a stool and read or lay on the floor to write, rather than in a traditional classroom chair, it is a huge excitement for them. While structure is an important part of our learning environment, I'd like to give my students the option of being comfortable when they are learning.

If students are relaxed, happy and comfortable with their seating they are more likely to be engaged in their learning for a longer period of time.

Wobble stools will be beneficial to my students who are fidgety and have a hard time being still. Large comfy chairs would also benefit other students who enjoy working in a cozy space. Ultimately, the end goal is to have motivated students eager to learn. With a student-centered flexible learning space I firmly believe it will increase their motivation and engagement.
