Mrs. Fulsher from Gresham OR is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Get Moving by Sitting!

Help me give my students the option of using a different type of chair that will help them focus on the content, while giving them the freedom to move.

My Students

My students are committed to excellence. Our classroom is a community of learners. They are are hard working young adults who are trying to also find out who they are. Many of my students have responsibilities beyond that of being a middle school student.

In our classroom, we are constantly reaching new heights in reading, writing and listening.

My students have some of the highest growth in our district. The foundation of our success is the relationships we build with each other. Our class is a family.

My Project

Some of my students struggle with sitting still. You can see them leaning back in their chairs, moving their legs up and down and constantly tapping pens. Sitting through class after class is difficult. Giving students an option of flexible seating would enhance the educational experience of the class community.

What a gift, to offer these students the choice to sit in something other than a chair that restricts movement.

These chairs would help not only the students who need them, but their surrounding peers who are often distracted by active students. Relationships is the key to a healthy classroom. Allowing students freedom to move as they learn will benefit our community of learners.
