Mrs. Martin from Concord NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Success!

Help me give my students flexible seating options such as wobble chairs, comfy pillows, and wobble cushions in our classroom. Studies have shown that there is a positive effect on student ability with a greater choice of seating and the freedom to move around.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

Our students work hard everyday and that reflects in their growing knowledge and understanding of our curriculum.

With your help, we can continue to push their thinking and learning into higher levels and help them accomplish their absolute best!

My Project

Did you now that allowing students to choose from different types of flexible seating has shown to help within a classroom? Having several options for students to choose from, in terms of seatings, allows a greater sense of choice for a student in their classroom. It can benefit their physical health by allowing students to "wiggle" and "wobble" while focusing their concentration on their work. Flexible seating creates a greater sense of community and collaboration and increases their commitment to learning. A 2012 study from the University of Minnesota found that "students participated 48 percent more in discussions in a classroom with collaborative group seating versus traditional lecture-style seating, and also improved their performance on standardized tests". Flexible seating is also fun and engaging for our students so we would greatly appreciate your help in bringing these to our classroom!
