Mrs. Milzarek from Tulsa OK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Flexible Learning

My students need to be able to learn in a non-traditional environment. I would like to provide them with flexible seating options in order to enhance their comfort in the classroom to enhance their learning.

My Students

They are hard workers who use teamwork to help one another accomplish their academic goals. They are also very sympathetic to one another and strive to support one another when they are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Research shows that students who have choices at school are likely to participate in class discussions and activities.

By providing flexible seating, students can be comfortable and have more ownership of their educational environment. This fosters more intimate conversation and more real world interaction.

My Project

Students today struggle to learn in a traditional classroom setting. Part of this is because they are not comfortable in traditional desks and chairs. I would like to allow my students some choices and control over their education and this seems to be a very positive way to do that.

Most students are not accustomed to sitting in a chair.

Most students sit on the floor, on sofas and even on gaming chairs at home and are often very engaged in their activities. I would like to transfer this concept to my classroom in an effort to improve retention.

Flexible seating would allow the opportunity for students to interact with one another on a more casual level and allow for more collaboration between small groups. To this end, I am requesting bean bag chairs and Neorok stools.
