Ms. Tyler from Merritt Island FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating To Maximize Learning

Help me give my students Wobble chairs as options of flexible seating to help maximize their learning experience!

My Students

My class contains 25, bright, energetic, and enthusiastic students who are crazy about hands on, engaging activities. They come to school each day seeking a new challenge, and leave with a sense of pride and accomplishment knowing that they have conquered those challenges each day. They come in everyday eager to learn, and willing to try new things.

My students learn from their mistakes and use them as an opportunity for growth.

We are a school of the arts, and students are regularly able to move about and be active throughout designated activities such as dance, drama, orchestra, music, and art. I would like to replicate this freedom of movement in the classroom by offering a variety of flexible seating options.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they can choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard.

I am asking for three different Kore Wobble Chairs.

Having these wobble chairs in the classroom will allow students an additional option for seating, while offering them a safe way to wiggle around in their seat while completing their work. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
