Mrs. Rice from Lansdale PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating !

Help me give my students flexible seating! Students learn better when they choose their seating. With the stability chairs, the bouncy balls, and the seated rockers, students can be comfortable and have choice while they are learning!

My Students

We have an awesome group of kiddos in 4th grade who come from many different economical backgrounds. These are students who often need more movement in their daily routine. My students love to work together. They are "teachers" as well as learners when they collaborate with their peers! From the high energy of the kiddos, to the creative thinking and learning, we are working so hard all day long and sitting in hard chairs isn't the easiest to do or the most conducive to our learning! We need these chairs!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
