Mr. Knobloch from Bridgeport CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Room for Movement and Music!

My students need seating that promotes a focused learning environment. Right now the chairs we have a big, bulky, and limit movement in the room. Inflatable seats and stools will help the wiggly students focus.

My Students

Our 409 students come from many different countries, states, cultures and families with many different backgrounds and experiences. Many students have had very limited exposure to music. One of the many benefits of music, is that music is a universal language that everyone can understand.

For many students, language, communication and cultural differences can be a challenge, but not in the music room.

We have our own music language and appreciate those differences while learning about the music from all over the world.

My Project

In our music room, we currently have large, bulky, old chairs that end up creating many distractions. A big part of music is allowing students to move and create. The stools will allow more room for movement and eliminate "space" distractions. Stools are much easier to move which will allow for often change of the seating arrangements such as being in circles, lines or small groups. The inflatable seats will be for "floor time" in the music class. Students currently sit on the floor while doing different activities or lessons on the SMART Board. These will help the younger student stay focused and allowing them to wiggle while staying in their assigned spot.
