Ms. Travis from Chicago IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students flexible seating options such as Wobble Chairs and Balance Balls to give them an environment they need to learn!
Living in poverty creates many obstacles to learning, including, but not limited to a lack of educational resources and an environment plagued with violence. My students have to endure these struggles on a daily basis.
In spite of these difficulties my students face every day, they are eager and motivated to learn!
Their faces light up when they are able to recognize and decode words and successfully compute math problems. They are overjoyed at their emerging reading and math skills.
Flexible seating supports students in many ways. With flexible seating, students will be able to have more choice in where they sit. These seats would also allow students to have more movement while working while encouraging a shared space and community building. They would also create a calmer atmosphere since students have more comfortable seats and would stimulate students sense of touch which increases their ability to focus.
Giving students these seats would not only increase their engagement but would also help with their socio-emotional skills and consequently increase their academic achievement!
This, in turn, would also improve behavior outcomes for many students as well. I know our students would be very excited if they had the opportunity to learn in an environment these seats would create.
