Mrs. Douglas from Somerville TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Best Learning

My students need wobble chairs and bean bags to allow for flexible seating within the classroom. I have noticed that not only do my students learn differently but they also prefer different seating options.

My Students

My students are diverse with many different learning styles, but, at the bottom of it all, they all have a common goal of being successful. Some of my students will only receive the help they need to reach their goal at school, leaving it up to me to make sure that I use every avenue possible to ensure they understand each lesson and are successful. Though Hurricane Harvey may have changed a lot of lives, my students' love of learning and their eagerness to their best has not changed.

I am always looking to enhance the learning opportunities in my classroom for the various types of learners that I have each year and through flexible seating my kinesthetic learners will be more apt to excel.

While Hurricane Harvey may have taken a lot from a lot of families,my students' willingness to work hard and learn has not changed.

My Project

Through flexible seating, my students have the option to get comfortable and solely focus on their learning. With the focus being on the learning that is taking place in the classroom, my students will have fewer distractions to deter them from success.

My students could strongly benefit from having bean bags, posture chairs and wobble stools in the classroom to allow for fidgeting, comfort and support.

I don't focus on the traditional classroom atmosphere because times have changed tremendously. My students become engaged in their learning while being able to have educational peer talk without focusing on comfort.

While we are working hard to master our math facts and understand how to successfully perform the math operations, I want my students to worry less about being still and become free to move if that is what suits them best. I know hat everyone learns differently and my kinesthetic learners will now be able to focus on learning and not comfort.

All of this work can be done using the flexible seating around the room. The Wobble seats are great for kinesthetic learners and allow students the ability to move while working. Some students like sitting in the floor around the room, and the bean bags create the ability to feel comfortable while using nontraditional seating options.
