Mrs. Johnson from Michigantown IN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating and Choice in the Classroom!

My students need to have the options to sit somewhere besides the classic desk and chair!

My Students

My students are amazing!!! But they can not sit still or sit in their seats the correct way! They would greatly benefit from having the freedom to have a new, unique and comfortable way to sit for their 7 hour school day!

Children love to learn new and exciting ways to test their freedom!

What better way to start teaching children the right thing to do? It's as simple as picking their own special seat! My kids will love the idea of choosing their seats but will quickly learn it is a special privilege that they must learn to respect and take seriously!

This will greatly help my students gain success and respect for their education!!

My Project

My children have never sat in their seats the proper way, and who can blame them! Kids need the option to sit in a seat if needed or to be comfortable for their 7 hour school day! These seats will help the child have freedom and learn to choose a seat that best suits them!

A place to sit, so simple yet such a major thing for a young child!

Having a fun and comfortable place to sit can allow a child to learn freedom and respect in such a simple way! Flexible seating is a tough thing to start but is also so rewarding in the end!

The Active Kids wobble chairs are helpful for those kids that feel the need to rock back and forth. It allows them the freedom to rock without the fear of falling out of their chair.

The surf portable lap desks- floor seats are an extra bonus for those who need the freedom from the traditional desk and chair but still like the feel of a desk!

The Gaiam Kids Stay-N-Play Children's Balance Ball will help those students who have the urge to bounce in their seats! This allows the student to have some movement but not be too disruptive to the classroom!

The Trideer Inflated Stability Wobble Cushion will allow children to sit closer to the floor and have a desk still in front of them. This will allow them the comfort of padding but the freedom of a non-traditional seat.

All of these untraditional seating options allow the students to have more options to sit comfortably and move when needed! Movement is essential to learn, this is one way I want to help my students get the movement they need daily!
