Mrs. Horn from Carterville IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Promotes Kinetic Learning

My students need 2 wobble chairs, 4 balance ball seats, 4 soft seats and 2 flex space big bean bag seats so that all students can choose a flexible seating option and actively learn.

My Students

My students are very active and energetic. They need lots of opportunities for movement throughout the day. One of the best ways that they learn is through kinetic learning. They are eager to engage in new activities. My students are emerging readers and writers and do well with having ample opportunities to move around the room during station time. They need a variety of seating choices so that their own individual learning needs can be met. Flexible seating will allow my students to be successful in the classroom.

My Project

Flexible seating will allow my students to make choices in the classroom. Currently, I have a few options for students to choose from such as pillows and stools. By incorporating wobble chairs, yoga balls, bean bags and mats all students will be able to utilize flexible seating. It will be very beneficial for students who simply need to get their wiggles out. Students may select where they would like to sit throughout the day. Flexible seating will positively impact my student by allowing them to learn kinetically while completing reading and writing activities. Students will be able to be active and focused as they complete their work independently.
