Mrs. Miller from Logan UT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for the Growing Mind!

My students need different seating options. We currently have some pillows, but they need better choices, such as stools or exercise balls. I am working on transforming our classroom into a more relaxing space.

My Students

I am currently a 3rd grade teacher at a title 1 school in Logan, Utah. I have the sweetest class and I look forward to going to work everyday! They are eager to learn and excited about school. I want to keep their enthusiasm and love for learning thriving throughout our time together! My students come from all different backgrounds and love learning from one another. Many of these students have been going to school together since kindergarten and it’s amazing to see their friendships grow.

My Project

My students are eager to learn but don’t love being crammed into a desk. I teach 3rd graders, a wonderful age where students are excited about school and are beginning to feel more independent and responsible for their learning. However, we currently have individual desks and it’s not the best option for our classroom community. My students love to have their own personal space, but also enjoy working with partners or teams. However, due to the limited amount of space in our classroom our desks tend to take up most of our useable space.

Research indicates that if a child has a comfy space where they can relax a little they are likely to be more engaged, happy, and focused on their work.

By providing seating such as pillows on a rug, exercise balls, or soft cushions students are able to choose the seating of their choice where they will be most comfortable and successful. I know, as an adult, I don’t enjoy sitting at a desk all day and do my best work where I feel comfortable. I currently have a student who prefers to stand at a counter in my classroom instead of sitting at his desk. By allowing this student to have that independence I have noticed a large increase in his focus and overall completion of his work. We would love to build a flexible seating arrangements in our classroom!
