Mrs. Parker from Dallas GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Increasing Choice Through Flexible Seating

My students need several different seating options (wobble seats, wobble cushions, and balance balls) to support their choice in the learning environment.

My Students

I am honored to teach 2nd graders. I absolutely love this age. They are filled with so much excitement and love of learning. In our classroom, we use tables instead of desks. This supports the students' need to collaborate with one another. Students are engaged throughout the day with hands-on activities and projects. Collaboration helps to promote deeper understanding, a sense of community, and critical thinking.

Colleen Wilcox said it best when she stated, "Teaching is the greatest act of optimism." By choosing this profession, I know each day I have the chance to make the world a little brighter.

I want to do what is best for my students, so they can get the most from their experience in my classroom.

My Project

Flexible seating is valuable because it gives students a choice in their learning. During independent work times, students will choose a location in the classroom that works for them. My plan is to have several seating options available. Making sure students are comfortable will ultimately increase their engagement. When students are engaged, naturally, more learning will take place.

Having a choice in their learning builds confidence and community.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The exercise balls with stands and Wobble Seats will allow for some movement. These will benefit those students that just need to get the wiggles out. The wobble cushions will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. I am excited to see the impact flexible seating has in my classroom.
