Ms. Whitfield from Falmouth VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Energetic Middle School Students!

My students need Kore wobble chairs, wobble cushions, and bouncy bands to encourage them to stay calm, focused, and productive. My goal is to create a comfortable environment in which they can be active, engaged, and enthusiastic.

My Students

What makes my students special? Every one of my students are special in their own unique way. Their personalities are blossoming, and they are figuring out who they are as a person. Middle school, right?! I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Our students have a lot of energy and need a way to funnel this energy. I want them to have options while in my classroom.

My students need a comfortable space that helps support their needs - academically, physically, and emotionally.

My goal is to provide my students with a variety of seating choices so they have an option to choose what works best for them as an individual student.

My Project

When I work, I want to be comfortable and sometimes it is not at a desk and chair. Different flexible seating options are important and beneficial to our students. I teach a variety of students who have a variety of disabilities. The wobble chairs, chair bands, wobble cushions, and bouncy bands are a variety of ways for my students to stay calm, focused, and productive.

Students spend so much time in the classroom and they need to be comfortable.

That may be having a chair that allows them to move, a classroom where they can collaborate, and even a spot where they can work in peace. These students are learning that a classroom is not just within the four walls of a classroom. It doesn't have to be a place that is orderly and uncomfortable. It is a place to feel comfortable and make progress!!!
