Mrs. P. from Mesa AZ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seating for Success

My students need alternative seating options like a standing desk, wobble chair stools, and exercise balls. This will allow children to move around the room, move in their seats, and collaborate while staying engaged.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a vibrant group of kids that love to be engaged in their learning. They enjoy being active, collaborating, and working as a community. The class has a wide range of needs and abilities.

My second graders love to work in centers, small groups, and work through inquiry.

This requires a variety of seating options where they can easily gather, move to new spots, and collaborate.

Living in a state with hot temperatures, students do not get to go outside as much. I like to keep them active while in the classroom to keep energy and blood flowing, which helps keep their mind sharp. They enjoy the opportunity to move around in the classroom while they are learning, especially when they can't go outside.

My Project

My 2nd graders can move into groups for collaboration and learning, using the ottoman storage cushion, the lap desk, and cushions. Students who are feeling wiggly, but want to keep focused, can move to the standing desk or pull up a yoga ball to complete their work.

Having cushions, donut seats, and stacking stools, will give all students an option and opportunity to keep engaged with fun and flexible seating.

I currently have some flexible seating options, but they are limited and not all students have a flexible seat to use. Students who are waiting for an alternative seat, can't wait to use one. This will give everyone an equal opportunity.
