Mrs. Volk from Philadelphia PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for First Grade

My students need options for flexible seating The flex space balance balls are for sensory input while students are seated and working. I included ear buds for each student to use with our online reading program.

My Students

My students are mostly 6 and 7 years old. They are young, enthusiastic learners! First grade is such an important year because children are learning to read and reading is such a vital skill to have in life.

My students love learning new things and work hard each day to improve in many ways.

They are passionate about learning. My students persevere through many hardships. They truly deserve to have additional resources to enhance their learning experience and reach their potential.

My Project

The materials in my project will give my students some options for flexible seating. The cushions and bouncy balls will provide my students with sensory input during their learning.

Having these types of options for seating will help my students be able to focus more and better able to retain information.

The floor chairs will give my students an alternative type of seating arrangement other than the traditional desk and chair. I included the pump as part of the project so that I am able to keep the ball chairs inflated on a daily basis. Flexible seating is a growing trend in elementary classrooms. I also included ear buds for each student to use in order to be able to participate in an online reading program.
