Teacher Wahaba from Virginia Beach VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Equals More Engagement!

My students need the Learniture Active Learning Chair/stool and the padded stools to help them have choices in the classroom where their best and more focused learning can happen.

My Students

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous. They like to move, they love to interact and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire my students to want to do their very best each and everyday.

My Project

We are requesting stools for flexible seating which allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.

I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The padded stools will be just right for conducting my small group lessons during guided reading and math.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
