Mrs. Bangert from Piedmont MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Firsties!

My students need a class set of wobble stools to begin our transformation into flexible seating.

My Students

Students everywhere are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

If I can offer my students flexible seating in the classroom, I will be opening the door for them to learn at a completely different level than what they are used to. Flexible seating offers students choice, movement, a sense of community, comfort, collaboration, and sensory input.

Students learn best when they have some control over their environment.

Flexible seating will allow students to have a choice in how they learn and with whom. If my project is funded the students will have the choice to sit on wobble stools, in scoop rockers, on stability balls, and move out of those boring traditional classroom chairs!
