Mrs. Massie from Stayton OR is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need yoga balls and higher tables so that they have alternative seats that help to increase concentration and retention.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach 7th grade Language Arts and 8th grade Algebra in a rural community in Oregon. 60% of the students at our school receive free or reduced lunch and many of the students come from low-income homes.

My students are energetic and eager to learn but the classrooms that they spend their time in are not designed to keep them engaged; this is why I want to use Flexible Seating.

I would like to modify the physical setup of my room in order to help foster more opportunities for collaboration and learning among my students. The goal of this project is to meet the needs of my students so that they feel understood and respected.

My Project

I am requesting yoga balls and some materials to create different seating options within my classroom.

Yoga balls help students to be more concentrated by engaging their bodies and allowing them to wiggle while still working.

These are also healthier options for students to sit in because sitting in regular chairs all day is hard on the backs of the students.

The other materials will allow the students to either sit on the floor or to stand at a raised table. Being able to stand allows students who are tired to be able to focus without fear of falling asleep and some students find sitting on the floor to be more comfortable.

Allowing the students to be more active within the classroom will help their brains to work more efficiently and will increase their learning.
