Mrs. Bradley from Jonesborough TN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My students come into class initially having lower confidence than similar students due to the challenges they have experienced in their young lives in their rural community in East Tennessee. Quickly, my students see the opportunities that education can provide for them. They work hard, want to please their teachers, and they want to be seen as valued and deserving students and people.

It is my goal to create a comfortable and active classroom culture for my students using flexible seating with matching funds.

As corporate and educational research shows, alternative seating options nurture academic achievement, build confidence, and foster a sense of community.

My Project

Choice

Flexible Seating allows students to feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment.

Physical Health

Flexible seating allows students to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength and burns calories

Comfort

Flexible seating environments can have a direct impact on student achievement, and comfortable students are engaged and productive.

Community

Flexible seating encourages students to share space and supplies.

Collaboration

Flexible seating allows students to quickly and easily pair up, work in small groups, or discuss as a whole class.

Communication

Flexible seating uses new classroom management tools introducing higher-order thinking skills, like problem-solving, and emotional skills, like conflict resolution.

Sensory Input

Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch that can help children focus and process information.
