Mrs. LeTellier from Woonsocket RI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Students in my classroom are hard workers and have many strengths. They require a modified curriculum and different accommodations throughout the day. Stations are the best way to teach the students' individual needs. With more than 73% of the students in my school receiving free or reduced price lunch, most of the students come from low income houses. The teachers supply most of the materials.

In a small classroom, having a variety of flexible seating options help the students focus and concentrate on their work and decrease the amount of walking around.

My Project

Many of the students in my classroom require a sensory diet and movement throughout the day. The wobble stools will help my students listen and work all while staying in their own area. The students in my class rock their chairs often and it is just not safe, especially with the counter height stools. I have very hard workers in my class and want to give them all the opportunities to have a successful day in my classroom. When the students have a variety of flexible seating available, I believe, they feel that they have the ability to concentrate and focus on what they are learning instead of concentrating on staying still in the classroom.
