Mrs. Moxley from Walhalla SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for a Collaborative Learning Environment

My students need flexible seating options like the Kore wobble chairs and Gaiam balance balls to create and motivate an environment of collaboration, risk-taking, and learning!

My Students

My students are creative individuals who are full of energy and curiosity! They love collaborating with peers as they solve hands-on, engaging challenges that push them to think critically and work together to find solutions! They come to school eager to try new things and unafraid to make mistakes, both personally and academically. Their perseverance is what drives me to do better and create positive learning experiences!

Each child in my classroom learns in their own way, making it a worthwhile challenge to accommodate their diverse needs.

I would love to provide an inclusive environment that inspires all to work and learn together. We use a variety of learning strategies, engaging activities, collaborative opportunities and student choice to ensure that each student's needs are met on their level. I am lucky and grateful to work with an incredible group of kids and always eager to meet each year's group of open minds!

My Project

Flexible seating gives students the power of choice in their learning. When working independently, students can choose where and how they will work best. Currently, students in my classroom sit around the room with cushions and clipboards to collaborate with peers. Giving students a choice in seating and providing a comfortable environment are both essential components in motivating students and ensuring success.

Students are more engaged and on-task when they are given a choice in their seating and we accomplish more when we are engaged and comfortable.

The products I have selected will help my students by giving them a variety of seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools and the balance balls allow movement while working and will help with students' sustained attention. These will provide an alternative to chairs and they will be beneficial for some students who just need to move! The rug and comfy floor pillows will allow additional comfortable floor seating options. The pillows can easily be used around the classroom.

In a classroom, student choice is an obvious motivator that positively affects students' work and engagement. I hope these items will help us push the limits and grow personally and academically!
