Mrs. Black from Horseheads NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is a place where groups of diverse students come together to collaborate and engage in learning. As a teacher of Academic Intervention Services (AIS), my students receive specific interventions in reading and math to support their classroom learning. These students come from a variety of backgrounds which means that they come to us with a variety of needs.

Creating a learning environment where my students can feel comfortable and confident is a crucial part of their success.

My students and I work together to develop a classroom environment we all look forward to entering each day.

My Project

My students have a variety of needs and many of them require an outlet for their movement and energy to remain focused and engaged in their task.

Studies have shown that children who are offered regular opportunities to move benefited greatly, particularly in the areas of reading, writing, comprehension, and fluency.

My goal is to have a classroom where students can get comfortable, relax and have an outlet for their energy while receiving maximum benefit from instruction. My students are sometimes frustrated or disheartened by needing AIS services and flexible seating with Active Kid wobble stools is one way to encourage them to feel at home with their learning.
