Ms. Maher from Sarasota FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need wobble chairs and balance balls to increase engagement and excitement for learning.
I have the pleasure of teaching the first grade advanced work cluster in a Title I school in the heart of Sarasota, FL. My class consists of 17 students who are eager to learn, enjoy reading, and are curious about the world around them. My students love to be able to be hands on and given the opportunity to think outside of the box.
Imagine the feeling of your favorite TV show's 3rd season premiere finally on Netflix; that's the excitement my students have when it comes to learning.
All of my students love learning, but they more so enjoy the process of learning. When they are able to collaborate with one another, move around the room, and be comfortable in their environment: they are more likely to enjoy what they are learning.
I am so lucky and thankful to be able to teach a great group of students who are as excited to learn as I am excited to teach!
Currently my students are fighting over which plastic, blue, old school chair to sit on. Giving my students different choices for how they will complete assignments will give them more control over their learning.
Flexible seating will take my students out of the "traditional" way to learn and take them into a realm of increased engagement and adventure.
Having wobble chairs at circle table will increase my students' enjoyment to write reading responses in their journals. Having balance balls at our guided reading table will increase blood flow to help students explain details of stories.
Flexible seating does not only give my students different learning environments and opportunites, but will also increase their enjoyment and decrease distractions.
