Mrs. Smith from Garner NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for 21st Century Learners

My students need flexible seating options in order to maximize learning!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students need flexible seating options such as yoga balls and wobbly stools. These seating options will give them the opportunity to move around and use up excess energy while still being actively engaged in their learning.

My Students

I have a diverse cohort of 27 active and enthusiastic learners. My students, while economically and culturally diverse, all share one thing in common; a zeal for learning.

Although they have an innate zeal for learning, each student has their unique way of learning and sitting at a traditional desk and chair doesn’t work best for all of them.

With flexible seating options, my students will be able to stay on task which will positively contribute to their academic success.

My Project

Flexible seating options are ideal for 21st-century students. Based on the needs of my students, wobbly stools and wobble cushions are a perfect addition to their learning environment!

These wobbly stools will enhance the learning experience within the classroom.

During independent work stations, students will be able to select the work area that works best for them. During the last academic year, many of my students chose to sit on the floor as they did not want to work at a traditional desk and chair station. This year, I would love to provide my students with flexible seating options in an order to optimize their learning and classroom engagement.

I am hoping that these wobbly stools will be a wonderful addition to the classroom.
