Mrs. Sousa from Livermore CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a variety of flexible seating options including wobble chairs, stand-up desks, Runtz ball chairs, and wobble cushions to promote engagement in the classroom.
My students come from a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds and have diverse academic needs. They are all energetic, enthusiastic, and eager to learn.
My students are immersed in a workshop model classroom where they are learning the 21st century skills needed to be successful students and adults.
They are learning how to collaborate and communicate with each other in a student centered classroom. They need a classroom environment that facilitates collaboration, creativity and choice. Flexible seating choices will promote engagement and allow the movement and choice that my students need to succeed.
"I focus so much better over here!" This is a statement from one of my students when given the opportunity to choose his own seat away from distractions. While traditional desks work for some students, not all of my students are successful in this environment.
Providing a variety of flexible seating options for my students will allow them the freedom of movement and choice needed to optimize productivity in the classroom.
Switching out a traditional chair for a wobble stool or providing stand up desks for students who just can't sit down all day will result in more on-task behavior in the classroom.
Including flexible seating options will also aid in creating a collaborative environment that is needed in a 21st century classroom. Communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking are an integral part of the common core curriculum. Flexible seating options will facilitate the development of these skills.
