Ms. Coles from Boise ID is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students options for flexible seating, such as the wobble cushions, comfy floor seats, and wiggle seats that look like a mushroom.
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!
In order to meet the many diverse needs of my class, I encourage them to use alternative seating ideas, standing desks, and chair bands.
All kinds of students need all types of accommodations. Sometimes alternative seating can really help students who struggle with focus issues. Thinking outside the box sometimes looks weird. But kids love weird.
Currently, I only have a few alternative seating options available for my students but this grant would provide them with more options.
Students feel empowered by having some degree of choice and control over their environment. Flexible seating allows students to choose where they work and with whom. It also allows them to change their location and positions as needed.
Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow, and core strength.
In turn, this burns more calories and increases metabolism. It also helps keep young minds more alert and focused. Children need to MOVE.
Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information. Sensory input is especially helpful for students with ADHD, ADD, and ASD.
