Mrs. Alvarez from Harahan LA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Active Learners!

My students need alternate seating in the classroom to help them find a space that works best for them. The Wobble chairs, balance balls, and floor cushions will help make them comfortable and ready to learn.

My Students

I teach 25 amazing 3rd graders. My students come to school energetic and ready to learn every day! It is hard for most students to stay engaged while sitting in a hard, uncomfortable chair. They can become fidgety and restless throughout the day.

My students set goals for themselves and are always excited when they've met them.

They have had some challenges this school year since it's the first testing year. Donating to our class will surely help them stay focused!

My Project

My students come to school energized and ready to learn! They need more flexible, comfortable seating options to enhance student engagement and learning. Students learn better when they are physically active and comfortable.

The Wobble stools, exercise balls, and floor cushions will provide them with the opportunity to select more comfortable seat to promote learning!

A comfortable learning environment can lead to more student engagement, which means more success!

This project could significantly help my students stay engaged in our learning throughout the day. I want them to feel comfortable in our classroom! They get tired of sitting in hard chairs all day and will do better if they are able to bounce on an exercise ball, sit, stand, kneel, etc.
