Ms. Jines from Mesquite TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating a Needed Resource

Help me give my students alternative seating in the classroom. I've wanted wobble chairs in my classroom to offer my students a variety of seating for their physical and mental needs.

My Students

I work in a Title I district. My students come from a very low socioeconomic area. Many of my students now and in the past have a variety of learning issues. I love the district I teach in because of the relationships I have built with my students and former students. These kids try very hard to get their assignments done with circumstances that no child should bear. They come in tired or upset, but manage to have a smile for me.

I play music in my room everyday and I feel that the music lifts their spirits and for that small amount of time they can forget about their troubles and be children.

Despite all they go through they are a very loving and happy group. My babies make me laugh everyday and some days challenge me to the bone, but I would not change it for the world. This is what I was meant to do and I am so very fortunate to be able to say, I love going to work EVERYDAY.

My Project

I have always wanted to have alternative seating in my room to offer my children a variety of seating to help in their learning. Children naturally move a lot and to want them to sit completely still while I explain or discuss and assignment is absurd.

There are so many children who need to move and be able to do it without disrupting the classroom.

By offering them a variety of seating for their needs you help with their self confidence and ability to concentrate. Alternative seating is so vital to a child's learning needs, but it is so expensive that I cannot purchase the equipment I need. If I am fortunate to have alternative seating I would use the wobble stools and my reading station and/or students desk. The bean bags would be placed in the listening station for the children to have comfortable seating instead of the hard floor. The floor seats are for the students who do not like sitting at a desk and are more comfortable seating low to the ground. I want my students to have the resources they need to be successful in their academic journey and I feel alternative seating is a great asset to our classroom. Let's face it they need to move. Its only natural.
