Mrs. Schimmelmann from Wyoming MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Moving and Learning in Second Grade

Help me give my students some alternative seating options in our classroom. I'm excited for the stacking stools and an additional balance board for use in our classroom.

My Students

My school is over 90% free and reduced price lunch, and a large number of our students are English Language Learners. Our students come from homes where basic needs are being met for the most part but anything extra is unusual.

The students in my classroom have a variety of learning and mental health issues which impede their ability to focus on classwork.

I need to add some new tools for these students to be able to become more successful learners.

My Project

I currently have some non-traditional seating choices in my classroom, and the students fight over who gets to use them!

I have many students in my classroom that can't sit in a traditional seat for a lesson or for any sustained reading time.

With the varied seating options in this grant, I hope to find alternate choices for seating and standing that will meet the needs of all of the students in my classroom.

These items will allow for varied chair sitting, floor sitting, and standing options in our classroom in the hopes I can give each student what they need to be successful while allowing them to move or stand when they work instead of being stuck in a traditional hard plastic chair.
