Mrs. Hill from Tucson AZ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Learning with Comfort

My students need flexible seating in our classroom. Items such as wobble cushions, stools, balance balls, crates, and bean beans will help student learning.

My Students

The students in my classroom are energetic, positive, and excited about learning. My students are from all walks of life and continue to impress me. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend and our school runs a food pantry on campus for our families. My students never hesitate to help one another and take new or shy classmates under their wings. They are a caring and sensitive bunch.

I want my students to achieve all they can and be the best they can be.

Making sure they have the materials and resources they need to achieve big things is important to me.

My Project

My students love to learn but certain abilities have them struggling to focus and sit still in class. Seating on a hard chair all day can be bothersome to most students. I plan to move most of my desks out of my room, creating move room for my students to move around and get comfortable with their new flexible seating. My students will have a choice of what is most comfortable for them to sit in while they learn. Students choose where they sit daily, but wherever they choose to sit, it has to help them be their best learning self. There will be enough options for everyone, and they take their comfortable seats wherever they go. I have realized that not everyone can learn sitting up in a chair. With so many options, students find what works best for them.

Children need to move and flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength.

In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. My students will be alert and engaged in lesson because they are more focused on learning.
