Ms. Bartholomew from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating!

Help me give my students clip boards so they can move around the classroom to find a comfortable place and stools for a new choice of chair.

My Students

My class is fully of young leaders who are eager to learn. They love being hands-on and engaging in work that fits their specific needs. Projects and STEAM activities really push them to expand their learning.

I have a classroom full of bright minds that want to push the limits on traditional classroom learning.

They love new ideas and different ways to learn. With a little help I know they will be able to better focus their energy on school.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Currently my students are lacking in variety of locations for working due to our lack of different options of seating. They enjoy when I do give them a choice, and that would be a lot easier with more options, it helps their wiggly bodies to stay focused while working.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.

I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

The colored stools and clipboards will allow them to choose and are great alternatives to a regular chair. There has been plenty of research done that shows how beneficial different seating options are to help students to succeed.
