Mrs. Dickson from Palestine TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating options to increase their learning ability.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My kindergarten students are full of energy and eager to learn when they walk in the classroom each and every morning. The students are extremely active, so they love to do a lot of movement activities and hands-on learning. They love to use different types of technology in our classroom on a daily basis. They always take on every new task to the best of their ability. We keep a very positive atmosphere in our classroom as well as throughout the entire school.

My Project

The set of balance ball seats and wobble chairs will provide alternative seating for my students. All students learn differently and at their own pace. Providing my students with choices in how they sit in the classroom will increase their learning ability. When they are comfortable in the classroom, they will be able to fully focus on each task.

The balance ball seats and wobble chairs will greatly benefit the active learners in my classroom.

This alternative seating will allow students to move more frequently while they are working throughout the day. This will help my students stay focused and avoid distracting other students around them.
