Ms. Algreen from Van Meter IA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating: A Student-Centered Classroom

My students need more comfort when collaborating and communicating with their peers so they can be successful with the work they complete in a positive learning environment. We need balance ball chairs and inflatable empire chairs.

My Students

My students come into my classroom every day willing to learn and try their best. When I ask them, "What qualities does a good student possess?" They respond using our district vision points, "A good student uses teamwork, communication, perseverance, and problem solves when given a task." I want them to know I will always be there to support them throughout their learning in school and encourage them to take risks.

My students are on-going learners using GRIT to overcome challenges.

Many of my students love to learn and receive positive attention. They are excited about exploring something new, with intentions of knowing that it is okay to fail. I am hopeful to inspire the students in my classroom by creating meaningful learning experiences for them.

My Project

The balance ball chairs and inflatable chairs will allow students to be more comfortable when learning in a positive learning environment. Being in this environment, student's voices can be heard and they will no longer feel outspoken, allowing for more invigorating conversations.

My project will make a difference because it will improve student participation and increase student engagement.

Giving students the flexible seating option, student voice is allowed to be heard, with more higher-order conversations taking place amongst students. Not only are more higher-order conversations allowed to be had, but also more engagement amongst students as well. Sitting in a comfortable space can allow students to become more self-confident when speaking in front of his/her peers. Please help me support my students with flexible seating so they are able to become more successful within their education.
