Ms. Carrie from Saint Paul MN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating and Opportunities for Movement

Help me give my students flexible seating options that allow for movement so students can get their sensory needs met while also increasing their focus and attention to academic tasks.

My Students

My wonderful students come from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. They come from several different countries where English is not the primary language. Many of them are homeless or highly mobile. On top of this, all of my students have some type of disability which greatly impacts their school success. A majority of the students in my school receive free or reduced lunch, ELL services, special education services, and/or other academic support services.

My amazing and super students work hard everyday to be successful in a mainstream school environment.

They love school and aim to please their teachers, parents, and other adults around them.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students options that increase focus and concentration based on their individual needs. All of my students receive special education services throughout their school day. During independent work time in my classroom, my students can choose where they want to work. My students have the option of working in a variety of different locations in the classroom such as: in chairs with cushions at different tables, sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board, or sitting on a bean bag with a clipboard. When my students are given a choice about where they sit and what they sit on, they are more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just given the option of sitting in a hard plastic chair at the table.

Giving my students a variety of options for sensory input from flexible seating, to jumping on a trampoline, to spinning, allows them to explore and discover exactly what their body needs to be successful in school.
