Ms. Klein from Charlotte NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seating With a Purpose

Help me give my students opportunities to move while learning. The motion stools will provide the movement they crave while paying attention and learning valuable content.

My Students

Our school is full of explorers, performers and inventors.

Each child brings their own creativity to our Title I, Visual and Performing Arts program.

From Kindergarten through 5th grade students are submerged into content through the arts. Our vision reflects our school’s spirit: “Through the arts, students will be inspired to become creative problem solvers, productive citizens, and life-long learners.” Each day they come with a flurry of questions to be answered about their world and our STEAM lab encourages that and more.

My Project

The opportunity to teach the entire school is amazing. While I am able to form relationships and teach a variety of content with each student I learn about their specific needs. One of those needs to is move in productive ways during instruction.

These seating options will allow more of my students to engage in lessons while meeting their need for movement.

This movement will further develop their sensory systems. Once this occurs in children they can better regulate their emotions and control body movement.

I currently have a few plastic stools that students eagerly want to use but they are not providing that subtle movement like the stools and cushions in this request. I cannot wait to see their focus improve and engagement in lesson content.
