Mrs. Wallace from Chapel Hill NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Busy Little Bodies!

My students need flexible seating to improve focus, engagement and attention during their school day.

My Students

I teach in a Title 1 school with a large variety of student needs. As teachers, we do so much more than teach reading and math. We ensure that children's bellies are full, that they feel safe in their learning environment and that they feel loved and cared for.

The atmosphere of my classroom is inviting, loving and comfortable.

We have floor tables with cushions, chairs as an option for carpet time and cozy rugs for children for children to stretch out on while engaging in a variety of activities throughout the day. The chairs that I do have as a seating option for my students are heavy and too large for my kindergarten students. I am requesting stools that are more appropriate for my student's statures, and 5 inflatable balance balls. I would like to add some seating options for my students to ensure that they are are able to learn and focus in the most comfortable way possible. These flexible seating options will give my students the opportunity to learn more naturally by allowing their bodies to move freely; this in return, will limit behavior issues and provide even more engagement during learning.

My Project

Kindergartners have a difficult time maintaining focus for extended periods of time especially when their seating is rigid and not designed for their little, energetic bodies! I know that when I come home, I do not want to sit at a desk to plan lessons for my students; I head straight for the couch or my comfy bed! My students are active little ones and need seating that provide ways for them to balance that energy while learning!

Providing flexible seating options in my classroom will help my students maintain better focus and engagement while learning.

I believe the more comfortable my students are, the better learners they will be!
