My Students

Do you remember how your middle school classroom looked? Most have rows of desks and lacking color. It's no wonder school could come off as boring! What we need is color and movement! I'd like to create a classroom where my students are eager to come in and learn in an environment that is stimulating and FLEXIBLE! I'd like to provide my students with a chance to wiggle while they work!

Multiple studies have shown that flexible seating helps students stay focused which means they learn more!

Help me break the boring old classroom habit of sitting in rows and bring them into the future where they can move as they learn! Your donation would help my students be comfortable, calm, focused and productive all at the same time!!

My Project

My students would love to come in to class and be able to sit in a position seat that would benefit them! Desks are so boring! Creating a flexible seating environment in my classroom would help them feel more comfortable while at the same time allowing them to be flexible by moving!

Studies have shown that flexible seating increases students ability to engage in group activities.

This would promote more in class interaction, discussion and a chance for them to work in groups much easier and more often! Your donation would greatly help my students ability to focus in the classroom in a comfortable and engaging environment!
