Ms. Gallivan from Lakewood CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating For Comfy, Cozy Learning!

My students need flexible seating in order to be successful. My first graders are high energy and all learn differently. Not all my students feel successful sitting at a desk and chair.

My Students

My students encounter many daily challenges. They are willing to take risks and experience success. Our school has become a safe space for them to take on these challenges because of the staff and culture at our school.

My first graders are looking forward to begin their journey to become life long learners.

They are a wonderful mixture of students, who are hard workers, striving to succeed. My first graders are at the beginning of their educational journey and I hope to inspire a love for learning in them.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are mainly working at their desk or on the floor with a clipboard and a pillow. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stool and balls are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The comfy floor seats and the lap desk will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
