Ms. Flores from Anaheim CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating to Flex Minds

My students need flexible seating options, like wobble chairs or balance balls, as well as an inflatable chair, to help them move and focus in the classroom.

My Students

Bright, energetic, and enthusiastic are a few words that describe my 4th grade scholars. They are a group of 9-10 year olds whose minds are always exploring new ways of learning and processing information. They are full of energy and are always wiggling in their seats.

I teach at a Title I school in Southern California where 96% of students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

We cater to a population of approximately 1,059 students with the majority being English Learners. We are a STEAM school and scholars take on the role of engineers through engagement and exploration in our Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program.

My Project

Diversity is something that should always be welcome and embraced in a general education classroom. Just like there are many methods of teaching, there are different type of learners. Providing my students with flexible seating options, such as wobble chairs and bouncy yoga balls, will provide them with seating options that provide accommodations to their learning needs.

With flexible seating options, students are given the power to choose a seat that will cater to their need to be active while learning.

Flexible seating will change the dynamic of the traditional classroom environment and will hopefully foster eagerness and comfort for learning. My students are extraordinary and unique in their own ways, therefore their seating choices should mirror just that.
