Mrs. Hunt from Marion NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning on the Move: Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating options, such as multicolored stools, inflated disks, and portable lap desks, to allow them to personalize their learning.

My Students

I teach in a school located in a high poverty area in rural North Carolina. Our school is currently 100% free and reduced price lunch. The students in my class come from various backgrounds, but a large number of them come here with specific needs for basic things like food and love. For many of these children, their time at school is their only opportunity to be in a clean, safe environment.

My class is full of rambunctious, on the move boys.

School has not always been 'easy' or fun for all of these children, but when they walk into my classroom, I make it my goal to change that. I do not expect all of my students to leave me on grade level, but if they leave with a love for learning and a desire to grow, THAT is how I measure my success.

My Project

By having these flexible seating options in my classroom, my students will be able to personalize their learning. Research shows that students who are given the opportunity to choose their seating are more engaged and have a greater ownership of their learning. These seating options will also allow my students with attention deficits to find ways in which they can focus and release some of their pent-up energy. I plan to use these materials with my students during their independent reading and math activities as well as throughout their school day.

No two students are the same, so their learning and seating opportunities should be no exception.
