Flexible Seating

My students need wobble chairs, stools, whiteboards, and lap trays.

My Students

Our two first grade classes consist of a total of 36 students. Donahue, Iowa is a rural town of 346 people. We are located just west of Eldridge, Iowa. We are one of five elementary schools in the North Scott Community School System. Our Elementary School offers PreK-6th grades, currently enrolling 251 students.

The student to teacher ratio of 14:1 makes our school a great place for students to get the individual support they need in order to be successful.

My Project

We would like to implement flexible seating in both of the first grade classrooms. It is important that we create an environment that is brain-friendly for our students.

We would like to promote a learning space that allows students to make choices as to where they sit to do their best work in learning.

Flexible seating allows students to make those choices, builds a sense of community and responsibility. It also provides movement they need for more focused learning. Brain research confirms that physical activity – moving, stretching, and walking – can enhance the learning process.

Our students will have the opportunity, with your donations to select from a variety of seating options within our first grade classroom; wobble chairs and stools. Students will also be able to work from a variety of spaces with their whiteboards and lap trays.
