Mrs. Jones from Orlando FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Comfy and Cozy to Learn

My students need to be happy, engaged, and relaxed to help them learn. All of the items I ask for will benefit different learners. The balance ball chair helps relieve tension and sit more comfortably.

My Students

My students are creative, confident, and full of questions. They love coming to school and being challenged with new things every day. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

They are also very loving students that look after each other and help each other through out the day.

If one student is struggling with something they will also try to help them.

The students truly make it a blessing to be a teacher. I would like to give them the opportunity to be able to have a selection of different seating to help them better learn.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them.. During independent work times I have allowed my students to choose where they would like to do their work. Some choose a different table, some choose to lay on the floor, some use their chair as a table. Giving them a choose in where they get to sit has made a tremendous difference. 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 products that I have selected will help my students by giving them more seating options and will help them become more engaged.

The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and the additional options will help us become even better leaners!
