Mrs. Adkins from Orlando FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning With Flexible Seating

Help me give my students the opportunity to sit where they see fit that they learn the best.

My Students

I teach at a Title I school that serves students that require 100% free lunch. Due to the budget cuts, our school has very limited resources available to our students and our teachers.

Most of my students speak a language other than English.

It is very challenging for them to learn English and perform on grade level academically. I am always looking for new ways to help increase their English vocabulary.

My students are curious and excited about learning. I want to be able to provide them with every opportunity to do so.

My Project

I've been looking into different ways to engage my students, yet making learning fun. I stumbled upon flexible seating in the classroom and thought that my students would love the concept. I will give students different options as to where they would like to complete their center/skill work for the day. I want to start out with wobbly chairs and cushions to test out the new concept.

Rather than making students sit where I tell them too, I will give them the choice to pick where they feel they can be most successful!

Another way to improve the function in my classroom, will be to get a large classroom mailbox. This will be where I can send notes home, return papers that were graded, and also a place for students to put work that they completed during the school day.
