Mrs. Gilder from Frisco TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Giving Students Comfort and Choice Through Flexible Seating Options!

My students need more flexible seating options for our classroom such as the Flex Space Wobble chairs and stability balls. I have several flexible seating options in my classroom, but these items would complete it.

My Students

My students love to learn and come to school with enthusiasm and curiosity each and every day. They are so creative and a lot of times I find myself learning from them just as much as they learn from me. Their passion and eagerness for knowledge in the classroom truly inspires me daily.

Our classroom is truly a community that utilizes cooperative learning structures and STEAM activities throughout our day to keep the students engaged and actively learning and exploring.

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. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed"

I began using flexible seating last year in my classroom and immediately noticed an increase in focus and attention as students were allowed to take control of their learning environment and get comfortable as they worked and learned.

I am wanting to add more flexible seating options to my classroom so I am able to allow smaller groups to allow for more meaningful collaboration and communication.

“Outside the windows of our classroom is a dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing world full of choices. How can we expect our students to solve problems and make choices independently if we constantly solve their problems and make their choices for them?”
