Mrs. Parrish from Knoxville TN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit, Wobble, and Roll: Flexible Kindergarten Seating

My students need wobble chairs, sensory cushions, and lap desks to allow them to have a choice in their seating and empower them to choose the best way they can focus and learn in the classroom.

My Students

I have the privilege of teaching a kindergarten class in an inner city school. My students are fun, eager to learn, and ready to try new things. For many of them, this is their first experience in a classroom setting. They come to kindergarten excited to soak up knowledge while not always having all the resources to do so.

My students are thoughtful, energetic, and inquisitive learners but may not always have the skills to maintain focus throughout the school day.

The students at this Title 1 school all receive free breakfast and lunch. In the classroom, maintaining focus from lesson to lesson can be a challenge, especially in our standard tables and chairs.

My Project

Moving beyond just table and chairs, fun and flexible seating will empower students to choose the best ways they can focus and learn in the classroom. Diversifying classroom seating with wiggle chairs, lap desks, and sensory cushions, students will be able to control their bodies, and better engage in the learning process.

For many students, the ability to move their body, work in a sensory-rich environment, or simply change locations allows young students to maintain focus throughout the long school day.

Many young children in school for the first time need more opportunities to move. I’m excited to revitalize my classroom into a diverse, fun, and exciting setting to development lifelong learners.
