Mrs. Johnson from Santa Clara CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in Mrs. Johnson's Class

Help me give my students individual flex seating so everyone can have a special seat. It allows them to stand or wobble. These seats increase oxygen flow to the brain so their growing minds remain focused and alert.

My Students

Take a diet of academics, add a heap of friendship, a toss of movement, a dash of fun, a pinch of laughter, a splash of music and art, a bunch of academics, and mix it all up and you get my class!

I have 60+ growing learners that are excited to share their book recommendations with each other, engage each other in mathematical discussions, create academia-filled writings, enjoy diverse books and graphic novels, gleen from peers how scientific research is carried out, adventure through the founding of America and its government, and reason aloud through thoughts and learnings.

Coming from various languages, ethnicities, and countries, we have a shared love for math, challenges that help us grow, thinking through problems, smiles, and learning. Our school has a great community around it - very supportive!

My Project

Instead of traditional seating, flex seating allows seating and desk arrangements so children can build community, and they reduce the sedentary time that can be required to do school work.

Research shows flex seating opens up a more relaxed atmosphere for conversation and allows students to be calmer and more productive.

I have a few stools and everyone wants to sit on them. I would like to provide more equitable seating for these learners that are ten and eleven years old. It allows flexibility in their learning, control over choices, and ensures a more positive classroom climate.
