Ms. Amy Arnold from Columbia SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Energetic Learner

Help me give my students flexible seating options that help increase their attention. These seating options may look fun but they are incredible tools to help students focus throughout the day.

My Students

My classroom consists of 19 second grade students. These students range in age, background, learning style and engagement level. Students at my school come from a diverse community that embraces differences and challenges.

Each day my students come into my classroom energetic and ready to learn, but it is hard to control that energy when most of your day takes place sitting.

I would like the opportunity to provide them with flexible seating options to help my students focus more on their learning. Flexible seating allows for students to choose their seat from a variety of options. These different options also offer seating that allow for behavior and attention issues, which will help those extra active students.

My Project

The students in my class are fantastic kids who come to school each day excited to learn. Unfortunately, a large majority of these students are unable to focus and work to their full potential. Flexible seating allows for student choice and comfortable seating which increases engagement. In today's day and age students are less engaged and have a harder time focusing throughout the day, these seating options help provide students the chance to move while learning. These 4 wobbles chairs, 3 comfy floor chairs and 4 wobble cushions will help enable them to be more engaged.

As a Title One school my students are faced with many challenges they cannot control, focusing on their learning should not be one of them.

I want to give my students the comfort and flexibility of these seating options to help motivate their learning.
