Mrs. Merritt from Burgaw NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Makes Learning At The Core!

My students need flexible seating to replace chairs and create an environment in which enhances their core and enables the students to move and get their energy out, in order to focus on their learning.

My Students

My students are fabulous! We are a Title I School. My students work collaboratively on classwork and Project Based Learning. We have done a lot of research this year. The students are fully equipped 21st Century learners. The students are able to use Google drive, Slides, Docs and Sheets. The know how to peer edit and problem solve.

My students are intrinsically motivated and have a natural love for learning!

My students are creative and full of energy. They foster a love for learning and are very creative, original thinkers! They need an energy outlet that will be a healthy way to diffuse some of their energy and help them focus on their learning and their classwork.

My Project

Students need to move! Students are bursting with energy! My students will absolutely benefit form flexible seating by using balance ball seating. The students will be able to focus on their learning by being given an outlet for their energy. The balance seating project will prove the students need to be able to move and adjust in order to learn.

Students are confined to chairs right now which may impose on their comfort.

The use of the flexible seating, balance ball seats, will afford the students the opportunity to "get the wiggles out' as well as focus on their core learning.
