Mrs. Wolford from Parsons KS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seating for Success!

My students need WOBBLE chairs, lap desks, and stools to help them stay focused as we create an engaging and collaborative learning environment.

My Students

Students come to school ready to learn in our Title 1 school in Kansas. Many cultures, religions, and races are represented in every classroom. My students are eager learners with lots of energy. While they come to school ready to learn, they also struggle with how to regulate their energy and movement. We have a structured day full of academics, and we also focus on personalized learning. I would like to create a classroom where my students can be easily engaged and focused through flexible seating.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent and group work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The WOBBLE stools will allow students to sit at desks but still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The lap desks will give additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. The stationary stools are portable and can be used at tables and counters while students collaborate together.

As students make choices which support their learning, they also are more engaged and focused on the task in front of them. Sitting on a hard chair at a desk all day is not necessarily the best way for students to learn to their full potential.
