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

Giving Kids The Option!

My students need flexible seating to allow them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand to get their oxygen flowing!

My Students

My students are so fun, engaging and lovable, but come from low income areas, therefore they are not exposed to all of the areas that are helpful to them that will help them grow and become better engaged learners. They love to be in control of their environment! They love to move around, go outside, and play games all the time and have a passion for math, reading, science and social studies. Having a fun environment will help them out a lot!

My Project

Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. Flexible seating allows students to quickly and easily pair up, work in small groups, or discuss as a whole class – without moving mountains of heavy desks to establish eye contact. Flexible seating helps make learning fun. The benefits far outweigh any negatives! It also introduces higher-order thinking skills, like problem-solving, and emotional skills, like conflict resolution. There’s also much value in fostering turn-taking and patience – especially for a generation of kids immersed in immediate gratification.
