Ms. Sanchez from Dallas TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Fun Fourth Graders

My students need yoga balls, Wobble chairs, cushions, and other alternative seating options to ensure success in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My fourth grade students are energetic and creative. All of my students come from a low socioeconomic background, but none of them have let that hold them back from exploring the world around them. My students question, reason, and actively participate in lessons.

These students face challenges both in and out of the classroom, but I refuse to let that get in the way of their education.

I made a deal with them on the first day of school: I'd give 100% if they gave 100%. So far, we have kept our sides of the bargain. In order to keep giving my students 100%, I need to seek out resources that will enrich their learning and enhance their understanding.

My Project

We are working in a classroom that looks the same as when the school opened 21 years ago. Students are sitting in desks and chairs all day, and many are struggling to stay focused. Many adults do not work all day sitting down at a desk, and my students will not work that way when they leave school and enter the workforce.

I want to provide them with a variety of seating choices so they have an option to choose what works best for them as an individual student.

My students need a variety of seating options including wobble chairs, yoga balls, and seat cushions. I can't wait to see their growth as students and individuals!

My students will love being able to choose seating options as they work independently in our classroom. Through research, I have seen fantastic results from classrooms with open seating options for their students. A couple of other teachers at Anne Frank use flexible seating and continue to RAVE about its success. I know my students would benefit as well, and I can't wait to see their excitement, as well as engagement, increase with our new seating options.
