Ms. Persson from Barnet VT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Serves Everyone!

My students need 22 of these Crazy Creek portable chairs if they will serve my largest class groups. This puts us slightly over $600.

My Students

My rural music students PreK-8th are resilient, creative and love to perform. At our weekly community meetings, they are eager to share their learning, often singing, reading, dancing or performing for our entire school when we gather weekly. With differentiated instruction methods, I am able to include students of all musical abilities in my PreK-8 music classes and allow them to perform at their own levels. As they advance through the grades, many of them go on to be accomplished musicians. Some act as mentors to younger students, sharing and passing on their love of music.

My Project

I am seeking donations to purchase padded folding chairs for my PreK-6th grade music classes. Research shows flexible seating meets the needs of students with multiple learning styles. Special needs students often need to move. These chairs allow for movement and also for defined personal space. Using these easily stacked chairs also allows for more movement activities in music class as we don't have to stack conventional chairs to get up and dance or move rhythmically. Our school has outdoor learning areas; with portable chairs we can take our lessons outdoors when weather permits. I have tested these chairs in my classes with 6 borrowed ones, and students reactions are overwhelmingly positive. They love the freedom of movement and the sense of private space, as well as the ability to stack all the chairs in seconds as we transition to movement and dance activities.
