Mrs. Blascovich from Harrisburg PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Fidgeting & Collaboration

Help me give my students flexible seating options. The stretch chair bands allow my students to fidget hands-free while sitting in their chairs. The carpet provides my students with a comfortable place to sit and collaborate.

My Students

My students are fifth-graders who greatly enjoy new, unique learning opportunities and love to work together! They learn best when they are engaged and able to optimally focus on the tasks at hand.

My students are eager to learn and enjoy finding new seating options around the classroom.

These fifth-graders love hands-on activities and greatly enjoy group work. They are open to trying new activities. My students happily share what ways they feel they learn best and the types of learning experiences that they most enjoy.

My Project

This flexible seating project provides students with several options. First, the flex chair bands allow students the option of fidgeting hands-free when they are working at their desks or sitting in chairs around the classroom. I love that these provide the opportunity for students to fidget without taking away the student's ability to productively write, etc. I personally purchased several of these to try with my students last year ,and they were a success.

Second, the area rug provides students with a comfortable spot to collaborate.

It gives students the option to work with one another in a new space around the classroom. My students last year asked me about a carpet several times. I would love to start the upcoming school year with a special carpet for my new students. Lastly, I think the carpet helps to provide a warm, welcoming classroom environment.
