Mrs. Hidalgo from Hesperia CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexing the Mind and Body with Flexible Seating.

My students need flexible seating options, like these Surf Desks, to help transform their learning environment from a traditional classroom feel to a cozy home feel.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day with smiles on their faces, materials to be successful, and a deep love for learning. They are kind and respectful to each other and others who may enter our classroom.

Every year I'm amazed with my students' ability to successfully incorporate 21st century skills, in particular the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity) in every task they are given.

Every year I am reminded that even though my students love to learn, their styles of learning vary, though their end goal is always the same, to be successful.

My Project

When students in our classroom are given the option to choose a “smart seat” I tend to see a change in the behavior as well as their engagement. Beginning last year I have tried to add some flexible seating options that help to create a space that welcomes students and accommodates their various learning styles. Over the course of the last year, I have added several different kinds of flexible seating options including scoop seats, cushions, wobble seats, storage seats, lap desks, and stadium seats. Some of these were purchased with site funds and others I've paid for myself.

By donating to our classroom you would allow for more students to have a flexible seating option instead of being restricted to traditional uncomfortable classroom chair.

I have been offering flexible seating within my classroom on a small scale for about a year now and I am excited to begin the transition from a mundane classroom into one that provides a special seat for all. I cannot wait to watch my students learning blossom in an environment that feels flexible, yet cozy and welcoming.
