Ms. English from Fort Mill SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating options like wobble stools, balance balls, and cusions to help them focus and learn in the best possible environment.

My Students

My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. For most, school is their safe haven and they look forward to a welcoming environment and a loving atmosphere. They are full of life and eager to learn. They are extremely motivated students when you give them a task and they spur each other on to perform to the best of their abilities in and outside of school.

They are a very active bunch and need some seating options that will allow them to learn in the best environment.

My Project

I have a very active class of students this year! To help them focus and learn better in our classroom, I would love to offer them more flexible seating options besides the standard chairs. They have a variety of needs and activity levels. In a flexible seating environment, I believe I can greatly increase the attention and learning potential of the kids in my class.

By providing students with flexible seating options, they will be able to learn more creatively and actively.

They will be able to choose between wobble stools, activity balls, cushions, or stools. This choice enables them to take ownership of their learning.
