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

Here’s an Open Seat!

My students need to have more seating available. I would enjoy having these stools to give opportunity for movement and more table seating options.

My Students

Our classroom is a safe place where students can explore, investigate, and discover in an enriching environment. This past school year, my students really enjoyed the flexible seating set up in the classroom. They were much more attentive to instruction and it gave them the ability to have some say in their own learning environment.

My students found excitement in the learning environment I was able to provide.

Students were able to build, create, and investigate with ease. My students continue to seek out opportunities to expand their minds and try new things. They continue to surprise me and everyday I learn along with them.

My Project

These stools will add more seating options and help particular students focus by allowing for flexible motion as task are being completed. Not only will it allow for more seating but they will help struggling students maintain attentiveness. I also love the idea that these stools can be moved around the room easily for student use at any point throughout the day. Ultimately I believe student success will improve due to allowed motion during independent work times and intervention times. Students will have more flexibility to work in a environment that is a fully collaborative and enjoyable learning space. Each student will now have a chosen seat instead of an assigned one.
