Mrs. Richardson from Brenham TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make Yourself Comfy! We Have Lots to Learn

Help me give my students a modern flexible seating style classroom with wobble chairs, bean bag chairs, and balance ball seats. I need your help to facilitate a classroom that is comfortable and aides in their most productive learning environment.

My Students

Welcome to our classroom! You'll see a diverse group of 6th graders in my class. They are eager to learn and look for a fun engaging classroom. They learn in a variety of methods and need a classroom that can facilitate that.

An engaging classroom is an active classroom.

You'll find my students having fun in their centers. We are in a smaller Texas town and resources are limited. They are rich in tradition and take pride in their school. I want to help give back to them by creating an even more fun classroom with a comfortable and calming setting.

My Project

As adults it is hard to sit still for extended periods of time. It is not any easier when you're asking that of a group of 11 year old students, while also asking them to give their undivided attention.

My students have a wide variety in how they're most comfortable learning.

I would like to offer the best environment for them to be able to be comfortable while working hard in my classroom by giving them "flexible seating" options.

Giving them the seating that allows them to fidget, wiggle, and just be overall relaxed will help them be more engaged in the lessons. Many of my past students just need flexibility to be relaxed and the ability to move around a bit to be more focused in class.
