Mrs. Elliott from Livermore CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Flexing Minds

Help me give my students seating options in our classroom. By adding two flexible seating chairs my students will have the flexibility of movement.

My Students

My students would greatly benefit from having access to engaging activities to allow them to have another avenue to think critically and work as a collaborative team. This is a unique learning experience of being a BYOD school that can be tailored to fit the content and specific needs of the individual classroom.

Our campus is a large public school with over 980 students.

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and are ethnically diverse. Students speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Arabic. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics. We are also home to a STEM program where our students conduct research and an award winning Leadership team. We also participate in and have had students qualify at the National History Day state wide competition.

My Project

Middle school is a time of both mental and physical growth. Sitting all day takes a toll; having comfortable seating options is a way to keep my growing students comfortable and focused. If students are able to be physically comfortable, they will be able to concentrate more on the tasks at hand. If they are focused on lessons, they will be able to be more successful learners. Knowing they can move from a regular chair to a yoga ball chair are options I would love for my students to have. Creating a safe, comfortable and fun environment is my goal.
