Ms. Avram from Edgewater FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating is the Way to Go!

My students need four wobble stools to add to their flexible seating choices.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I work in a low-income 5th-grade classroom, teaching Math to three classes. My students desire being given choices so that they will feel invested and responsible for their own learning. Their choices allow for greater engagement, a higher desire to learn, and a certain amount of pride that comes out in their work.

My students are at the age where they are not only exploring the world around them but are on a journey to explore their true potential.

Math is one of those subjects where students either love it or hate it. It has been my mission to instill the love for Math in my students by providing them with a learning environment that will allow them to comfortably work around the classroom. Doing so allows them to stay focused, demonstrate perseverance and gives them the opportunity to feel capable and confident in their abilities.

My Project

This will be my third year implementing flexible seating in my classroom. I have had floor cushions, sofas, stools, yoga balls, stadium chairs, saucer chairs, butterfly chairs, rocking chairs... you name it!

Flexible seating has given my students the opportunity to make choices, created a more comfortable learning environment, and encouraged students to be more engaged.

Students do their best learning when they are comfortable. An uncomfortable student is a distracted and unproductive student. Comfortable students are calm, focused, and productive. More wobble chairs will allow students to bounce, twist, lean, fidget, wobble, roll, stand, kneel, and sit to suit their needs.
