Ms. Hanson from Bend OR is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Success

My students need flexible seating (wobble chairs, floor seats and beanbag seats) to provide choices that will increase engagement during lessons.

My Students

My fourth grade students are eager to learn and want to be successful in that process. Some need more supports than others. These children are loving and kind when given the opportunity to shine. Some students have issues to overcome.

This project is intended to help support the diverse needs of the children that become part of my family for a school year.

I would like to provide an environment that removes as many barriers as possible for my students.

My Project

Traditional seating in public school classrooms is not conducive to promote engagement and learning. Sitting in hard chairs at desks or tables for extended periods of time makes keeping students engaged more difficult. I want to provide beanbag chairs, floor seats and wobble chairs for students who need to wiggle.

Finding ways to remove barriers to learning can be a simple solution, like where one sits.

With this in mind, I would like to provide choices for children to have a place in the classroom that works best for them. Students need an opportunity to be comfortable and/or wiggly while they learn. By providing choices for different seating options, students can find what works best for them.
