Ms. Ward from Elizabeth Cty NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating is a Perfect Fit in First Grade!

Help me give my students 4 wobble stools, 4 bouncy bands, and 4 wobble cushions to help them move while they work.

My Students

My first graders are energetic, loving and enjoy working together in groups. We have fun exploring about our world and working together in workstations to grow and learn together. Our school is a great place to work and learn.

My students deserve a great classroom environment and flexible seating will be such a great addition for all learning styles!

Throughout the day, you can hear sounds, words, and numbers being echoed inside of our four classroom walls. The first graders at our school work so hard to learn to read, write and gain number sense before they leave us to become second graders. Our class enjoys playing and working outside on nice Sunny Spring days. You would love being a visitor in our classroom!

My Project

I have heard what flexible seating has done for the classroom environments and students' engagement and attention in other classrooms in our building and I would like to give it a try for my first graders!

I want to provide the best education for my students and if I can help create a classroom environment that will best meet the needs of all learner styles I am given each year from the over achiever, ADHD child, to the timid, shy and reserved student that is afraid to answer a question, I want to give it my all!

Redesigning our classroom environment with flexible seating such as wobble stools, wobble cushions and bouncy bands will help me to better meet the needs of my diverse learners. Research shows that ADHD students learn best when they have seating options like wobble stools that allow them to be able to wiggle while learning. I am confident this seating will benefit all of the learners in our classroom. My students love to be given a choice and to be able to move and wiggle. I give my students' experiences, that will benefit all types of learners and learning styles. Research shows that flexible seating with all learners, but especially with ADHD students, improves listening skills.

Thank you for helping our classroom begin our makeover towards flexible seating and to better behaviors, attention, and listening skills!
