Ms. Boulger from Seaside CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Options

Help me give my students comfortable places that get them up off the floor and out of standard chairs using furniture such as wobble seats and stools in order to do their best work.

My Students

My 1st grade students are an excited bunch of individuals who enjoy keeping busy and learning through inquiry. They love to engage in thoughtful conversations with each other and move about throughout the day.

Along with research around flexible seating options, my students are sharing opinions with me about their best work and most comfortable positions.

This year has been a great opportunity for us to listen and learn together.

My Project

My students and I are learning about the benefits of flexible seating and how to make it work best for us as we go along. Even though I have a large variety of seating options, they mostly focus on being on the floor and I have noticed many kids being hesitant to sit on the floor all day.

With the goal of flexible seating being that students are comfortable to do their best work, I want to listen to their feedback and meet their needs in a fun and creative way.

The seating options in my project include wobble chairs, floor seats, stack stools, and children's chair balls to give students the opportunity to work more comfortably as well as feel a sense of ownership of their classroom and their choices. I am also requesting lap desks, which can be used with various seating options.
