Mrs. Troxtell from Archdale NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Engaged Learning

My students need wobbly cushions, bouncy bands, and beanbag chairs to make learning in our room more flexible!

My Students

My class is a place where kids can access places they only dream of through reading. They are excited by new challenges and work hard to meet those challenges that they face in and out of school each day. Our classroom is a place of hard work, effort and love.

I have an amazing set of students who work hard everyday to be better than the day before.

They strive to do their best even when things are hard. A group who knows with hard work and effort they can reach all of their dreams!

My Project

When do you do your best work? When you are sitting in a hard plastic seat for hours on end or when you can find your just right place to work? Kids learn better when they can move and have some options of places to sit while working.

I want my students to be engaged learners and having some more flexible seating options will make this a reality.

I know as an adult I do my best work when I can prop my feet up and get comfy and I know my kids are the same. I want to give them some different options in the classroom for seating and for movement options so students can choose where they can do their best work.

As an adult I need to move, so I know my 4th graders do too. Please help give my students some options in movement through the bouncy bands and seating options with the bean bag and cushions.
