Mr. Maxwell from Thorndale PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating options, such as stools and wobble seats, to reduce anxiety while increasing creativity and focus. My goal is to provide them with comfortable seating options to improve their learning.

My Students

Many of my students come from economically disadvantaged families. More than 60 percent of our school receives free or reduced lunch.

Students spend the majority of the day in cooperative learning structures.

The traditional seating found in the classroom does not allow for effective communication among student learning groups.

Despite the challenges my students face in and out of the classroom on a daily basis they are excited to learn and enjoy coming to school each day. Our school strives to make school and enjoyable experience where students feel safe and engaged.

My Project

By offering my students flexible seating in our classroom, students can choose from a variety of options that will best fit heir learning needs. This will also allow my students to make responsible choices and take ownership of their learning. Flexible seating, such as stools and wobble seats, will give my students comfort in our classroom by giving them the choice of seating. My students will also have the freedom to move while working, which will keep them engaged and focused. I have noticed a positive change in my students behavior and academics when given the opportunity to choose their seating. Flexible seating is the key to enhanced learning.

The products that I have chosen will help my students by giving them additional seating options to help increase their focus and make more effective learning choices.

The wobble stools will be perfect for the students who just need a little bit of movement to help them focus.

The wobble cushion could be used on their seat or on the ground as a seating option to help those students with sensory needs to help them remain focused. The portable lap desk will be perfect for students who wish to work on the floor while providing them a stable writing surface.

I have seen how choice has positively affected my students focus and work ethic and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more
