Ms. Anderson from Oregon WI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Flexible Learners

My students need lightweight flexible seating and extendable tables to allow easier access for small group work and more hands-on, project-based learning experiences.

My Students

The outdoors IS our classroom. We learn as we go. As I transition to teaching 3rd grade, I anticipate more hands-on, project-based learning experiences for my students.

Nature is abundantly inspiring, and my students have an impeccable sense of curiosity and wonder.

Pairing that with a team of adults dedicated to providing exceptional inquiry-based learning experiences for their students makes for exciting school days for both adults and children.

I am constantly trying to find ways to harness and tap into that childhood inspiration, and to help their creativity and love for learning flourish. I want to share in the urgency for preciousness that my students still hold on to. There are so many things to discover and learn about when the outdoors is your classroom.

My Project

Flexibility is key when facilitating project-based learning. Having tables that extend from a four-person to a six-person seating option would be beneficial as student group sizes change from week-to-week, based on the current unit of study.

More and more schools are incorporating flexible seating options into their classrooms, and with positive results.

“It makes classrooms more accessible for students, increases student engagement, and opens the room to a variety of learning styles—there are places to collaborate, lounge, work silently and individually,” says our principal. We need benches, seat shells, and tables for our flexible seating.

Instead of a traditional classroom with endless uniform rows of desks, teachers are learning that having a variety of seating arrangements for their students helps the students feel more comfortable in their learning environment.
