Ms. Rieger from Cherry Hill NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in First Grade

My students need flexible seating options to help them learn better. They need wobble stools and cushions, and bouncy bands for their chairs to allow them to lean, fidget, wobble, and sit to suit their needs.

My Students

My students are wonderful, energetic, caring, fun learners. My students are better able to demonstrate success when fun and energizing movement breaks are incorporated. These breaks allow my students to enhance their focus and retain more information.

My students would benefit from an environment that is comfortable, along with one that helps them be their best learning selves.

As they are young learners who are full of engery, they can get fidgety and restless. Flexible seating will give them options that make them more comfortable while they are learning. I want my students to enjoy learning and be successful every day!

My Project

Students learn best when they are given choice, and some control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work, and allows them to change their position as needed. It is also no secret that children need to move. Flexible seating allows students to bounce, lean, twist, kick, fidget, wobble, roll, stand, kneel, and sit to suit their needs. It also allows for a sense of community and comfort. Comfortable students are calm, focused, and productive. Flexible seating also provides options that stimulate with the sense of touch, and helps students to process and focus on information. I know that flexible seating will help my students be the best learners they can be, because they will be in an environment tailored to their needs.
