Mrs. Wrobel from Southington CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fostering Active and Engaged Learners Through Flexible Seating

My students need wobble chairs, wobble cushions, and chair bands to allow for movement and choices while they learn.

  • $555 goal

This project expired on December 11, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom consists of a range of active learners and several students with significant needs. My school houses specialized classes for students with special needs. Last year I had limited alternative seating, but what I had worked wonders for my students.

Having flexible seating options for the whole class would give each child the opportunity to select how they will learn best.

My classroom is tight on space and flexible seating that is efficient within the space is essential. Seating options will make the function of the room more efficient and conducive to learning for all students.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning by making choices. Throughout the day, students can support their learning by utilizing multiple seating options. Having the ability to make seating choices has multiple benefits in the classroom including better focus, less disruption and acting out.

With flexible seating, students are empowered to self-reflect on what will meet their need the best.

By having options that are efficient with the space in the classroom I can best meet the diverse needs in my classroom. The wobble stools and cushions allow movement while they are seated at their desks. The chair bands turn standard chairs into a sensory and movement supporting tool. These wobble options will incorporate into the existing choices in my classroom to meet the needs of all my learners.
