Mrs. Lewis from Remlap AL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Smart Spots: Flexible Seating for Kindergarten!

My Students

My Kindergartners enter our classroom every day ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything! Our school is a small, rural place where everyone feels like family.

Our school is made up of low-income diverse social and academic needs.

My students are eager to gain new knowledge and meet their goals to become successful one day! Kindergartners need the option to move around to obtain this success!

My Project

I want to implement this project to provide a better learning environment for my Kindergartners. Kindergarten is such a crucial year and I feel with flexible seating the students will be able to focus and gain more knowledge. Sitting in any chair for extended periods of time has a negative effect on children physically which then leads to negative effects on them mentally. Students may seem restless or unable to concentrate when the real problem could be a lack of movement. I feel these resources can help close the gap on some of these issues. Students like to feel comfortable when they work! This is extremely important for my students.

Students will be impacted by providing a safe, flexible environment to learn.

This will provide better physical and mental activities for the students. This project will directly help at-risk students with providing an environment that is more conducive to learning.
