Mrs. Todd from Omaha NE is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating - The Choice is Yours!

My students need flexible seating options-wobble chairs, balance balls, and a standing desk - that will help improve focus and stamina within our classroom learning environment.

My Students

As a teacher in an ethnically diverse school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to be their constant, their cheerleader. Our school serves students in grades K-6, providing rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. Our mission is to empower students for the future.

Although the demographics of a classroom can change, one thing remains constant--the ability for all students to succeed when provided with the resources to do so.

My students are ready to face all challenges and reach for the stars to become successful citizens both in and out of the classroom.

My Project

I would like to add more flexible seating options into my classroom, creating an environment that is beneficial to all learners-one that fosters choice, movement, community, collaboration, and comfort. I'm requesting a standing desk, 3 more wobble chairs and 2 balance balls. Students will be given the choice of where to work each day, choosing between these conventional options or a more traditional seating choice. The goal is for students to have the option of which works best with their learning style.

It is difficult for students to sit for long periods of time.

Research confirms that physical activity – moving, stretching, and walking – can actually enhance the learning and understanding of grade level content. Allowing these flexible seating options will provide my students the choice of where to work. The brain learns best and retains most when the child is actively involved in physical activity. Flexible seating is an integral part of this.
