Ms. Washburn from Loveland CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Personalizing our Seating in 2nd Grade!

My students need 12 wobbles stools and wiggle seats to use instead of chairs to provide opportunities for movement during learning.

My Students

I can't say enough about the students I am blessed to work with at my current school. I team teach 2nd grade so I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work with twice as many kids in an average year. They are a diverse group of personalities, backgrounds, languages, special needs and interests. They come to school every day, despite a variety of unique challenges, with a willingness to try their best. They thrive when they feel safe and when they have the tools necessary to support their needs as learners.

Our students love to laugh, to share, to interact with their classmates and to work in a classroom where they have choices on how and where they learn.

That is what makes our classroom so special. We try to provide an environment where choice is a fundamental part of the culture we create. Our students are getting personalized learning in the best way we can provide it for them, with the materials we have available. I'm excited to begin the year with another group of amazing learners who advocate for what they need and who are excited to come to school!

My Project

Personalized learning is the focus of our school, and with that comes the freedom our students have to choose where and how they learn. Currently our students have rug space, clipboards, yoga balls and some scoop chairs to choose from when they are working independently or with a group. However, adding wobble stools and wiggle seats would provide options for those sitting at tables or desks. It's not uncommon to see students leaning back in chairs or rocking them side to side, which is unsafe, simply because they crave movement.

Research proves that providing flexible seating, movement option, and choice improves motivation and fosters engagement in the learning.

Ultimately, the goal is to have students advocate for what they need to make their classroom a space where they can be creative and collaborative while providing them opportunities for movement. And at 2nd grade, movement is a huge part of our day!

Last year we had one stool in our class and it was a popular choice among 36 students. Therefore, we are hoping Donors Choose can make this addition to our classroom a possibility and give our students even more seating options.
