Ms. Park from Irvine CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Choo-Choo-Choose You . . . Wobble Stools, Bean Bag Chairs, and Cushions!

My students need wobble stools, bean bag chairs, and cushions that will help them stay engaged, associate reading with fun, and offer flexible seating choices in our classroom.

My Students

China, Iran, Israel, Japan, Afghanistan, and France are just a few home countries that my students hail from. It has been a journey for them this school year, moving to America, being submerged into a new language and new surroundings, and having to make new friends. Although the school year is halfway through, they are still in the process of learning English, especially in the academic context of school.

My students are bright and friendly; they love to learn, love to move, and love to sing songs in English.

They work very hard despite the challenges they face as they learn how to read, write, and speak English. Many of my students love science and love group projects.

It is my challenge to accommodate them when I can, challenge them when I can, and show compassion as they navigate the complexities of the English language.

My Project

My students love to move. Our classroom has round tables with chairs that are all the same size. I want to provide my students with seating options, such as wobble stools and cushions, so that if they need to move around to help them focus and stay engaged, that option is available.

It is also difficult for my students to sit and read a book in English, so I would like to provide bean bag chairs to help my students get excited about reading.

It is important that my students associate comfort and ownership with their learning in our classroom. I want to incorporate these flexible seating options so that they are given different choices in our classroom.
