Ms. Parker from New Augusta MS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning in Style and Comfort

My students need seating that fits their learning styles. With the use of the bungee chairs, saucer chairs, and sand chairs, my students will be able to learn in a comfortable, inviting setting.

My Students

My sixth grade classroom is filled with students who are very clever and eager to learn. Our school is in a rural, low-income area, and our students have little exposure to the world outside of our small town.

My goal is to give the students experiences containing instruction and insight that will enlighten them to the world around them.

I hope that these experiences will begin to pave the way for each of their bright futures that I can already see forming.

My Project

Flexible seating has been proven to help students learn in a comfortable, engaging manner. When given a choice in seating, students become responsible for their own learning by making intelliectual, independent decisions. It is then, that the student has some control of their learning environment.

My students need to be able to have the opportunity to make responsible choices in their learning that can follow them throughout their journey of higher education.

Through this project, my students will have the added choice of bungee chairs, saucer chairs, and sand chairs that will provide comfort and engagement while learning in our classroom. This will differ from the standard chairs that we have now. Flexible seating, such as the bungee chairs, saucer chairs, and sand chairs, provides students with the opportunity to make choices that best suit their learning style. This is a simple, but critical choice that can follow them throughout life.
