Mrs. Jarosz Dahm from Vernon Hills IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Learning Minds

My students need stability wobble cushions, lap desks, and Donut Ball chairs to be able to move and sit around the room in the space that works best for them.

My Students

My 4th grade class is a group of amazing students that are unique in many ways. They love learning, trying new things, and finding joy in what they do.

My students love having the ability to be able to choose they way that they learn best.

They come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, have all different personalities, and have very diverse learning needs and abilities. Recently, we have begun to change our classroom seating arrangements and it has made a significant difference in engagement, participation, and work completion.

My Project

We are hoping for some new seating options in our classroom. We have already lowered tables for students to sit on the floor and raised desks for students to be able to stand while they do their work. The class has been so excited about our new areas in the classroom to sit. They are looking forward to even more options.

I am asking for lap desks for my student to be able to sit on the floor around the room while still having a writing surface or space to put a laptop.

I am also asking for stability wobble cushions and donut cushions so students can sit at lowered tables and not have to sit directly on the floor.

The latest research studies have shown that seating choice around the classroom in ways other than the traditional student desks helps students focus, work together, and find the learning environment that is most comfortable and works best for them.
