Mrs. Tamayo-Harvey from Wildomar CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit...Wobble...Stand...Kneel... Lean...Learn!

My students need a flexible seating environment because studies show that students - particularly young students like mine - learn more readily when they are comfortable and in less regimented seating environments.

My Students

The Nobel Prize winning Irish poet William Butler Yeats once said 'education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.'

As a veteran teacher of 22 years, I still have a passion for teaching because every year, I get a chance to light a fire in 25 new and wonderful second grade students.

And part of lighting that fire is striving to prepare them for the future and instill in them a passion for learning.

In our classroom, students begin each school year by learning good citizenship characteristics such as responsibility, kindness, caring, making good decisions and collaborating with each other respectfully. I believe these are the building blocks for both education and for providing students with a foundation for a personal and professional future in the 21st century.

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. About one third are usually English learners. So in addition to the Common Core standards I teach, we learn from each other every day. And as 7 and 8-year old second graders, they are full of life and ideas and create a lively and animated learning environment.

My Project

My students will have the opportunity to select the type of seating that best supports their learning style each and every day.

The wobble chairs help students stay on task, improve oxygen flow to the brain, keep them mobile and encourage active sitting that allows a student's knees, hips, and back to be comfortable in ever-changing positions.

They also provide an outlet for 'high energy' children by helping them focus through continuous movement without distracting other students.

The Balance Balls also encourage collaboration and communication by keeping students mobile and more comfortable. They also help students practice healthy sitting positions and improve their posture. The Wobble Cushions serve a similar function by helping students stay active and focused at the same time. The Kneeling Pads also help students stay active and focused by allowing them to sit in comfortable positions on the floor and in group settings that encourage collaboration.
