Mrs. Parks from Easley SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Flexible Learners

My students need ball chairs, balance pods, fidget bands and furniture risers to have flexible seating options to help them stay focused.

My Students

I have a total of 25 students in my class from various backgrounds. Each child possesses his/her own unique and special qualities, which I am excited to learn more about throughout the school year. Although many exciting adventures and learning sparks happen in first grade, reading is the most important of them all.

As a first grade teacher, I have the privilege of not only teaching my students HOW to read, but teaching them to learn to LOVE to read.

One way that I hope to spark this love of reading is by providing my students with texts that match their individual reading levels and interests.

My Project

I have 25 students in my class with different strengths, different needs, and different learning styles. These resources will allow my students to choose the type of seat that will help them stay focused and get as much out of our time together as possible.

By allowing my students to choose their type of seat, it gives them ownership of their learning.

Some of my students would rather not sit down all day long. I will have raised tables and balance pods for them to stand on. Some would rather sit, but are very fidgety. I will have fidget bands to help them focus their energy. Stability balls will allow others to move their bodies while still staying seated and focused. I allow my students to choose their literacy stations each day. By also allowing them to choose their seat for the day, I feel it gives them more ownership not only in what they learn, but how they learn.
