Ms. Simon from Bridgeport CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Fifth Grade

Help me give my students wobble stools and yoga balls to sit on during independent work time. Being able to bounce and wiggle will help my students stay focused!

My Students

My students come into school each day excited and ready to learn. Every morning I have a student stand outside our door and greet the others as they enter. When I think of my classroom, I think of the community we have created. From the morning to the very end of the day, students are supporting each other and working hard to achieve amazing things. I love going to school every day to see their smiling faces!

There is no better feeling than having someone say something nice about you.

Some times when we have extra time at the end of the day I will give students little slips of paper and they will go around and write nice affirmations about the other kids in the class. I am always blown away by what they write! My students are so supportive of each other (and of me) and I am forever grateful for that.

My Project

Having wobble stools and yoga balls in my classroom will allow students to have choice in where they sit. This choice will teach my students how to make responsible choices. They will be responsible for sitting in a place where they will be able to get their best work done. Additionally, having wobble stools and yoga balls will help students stay focused. When young students can wobble and bounce and move during learning, it helps them stay focused for longer periods of time. There are so many benefits to flexible seating and I am so excited to bring it into my classroom!
