Ms. Bame from Oswego NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Accommodations

My students need to be able to feel comfortable and to have some movement during lessons and instruction in order to get the best education possible! Having the option of flexible seating is so important!

My Students

Being the inclusion room for my grade level in Oswego, NY, it is so important to my students' success that they have flexible seating in order to feel comfortable while learning! The benefits of flexible seating are crucial to increase students focus throughout their entire day! Some of my students really need to have a "Safe place" or seat to engage and participate in lessons. My students deserve this! I have so many hard working, dedicated and compassionate students and I want to make sure that I can lead them to the success they deserve in my classroom!

My Project

Making sure my students are comfortable throughout the day in my classroom plays a huge role in their motivation. Having the opportunity to provide students with choices for seating during instruction and independent work time would be amazing! The seats that I have picked out will allow my students that need to wiggle more throughout the day stay engaged and focused. This will help to avoid disruptive behaviors in my classroom while keeping them focused during instruction. Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.

Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work.

Children need to be able to move and these wobble stools will allow them to wiggle and wobble which will in turn keep them alert and focused throughout the day. I have an amazing group of kids this year and I want to make sure I can bring as much success to their 3rd grade year as possible!
