Mrs. Finch from Conyers GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stretching Brains Through Flexible Seating

My students need flexible seating in my classroom so that they can find comfortable positions as they focus and engage in learning.

My Students

I have the pleasure of learning from 48 wonderful 4th grade students, and they from me. They walk in each morning eager to see what their day of learning holds for them. My students thrive and flourish when they learn new things, and when they are able to share what they have learned with their peers. Each and every day brings a new experience for us all, and I love every moment of it.

Once expectations have been discussed, my students have proven they can handle the responsibility of flexible seating.

We complete a lot of small group tasks in which collaboration is vital. As students engage in these various activities, most prefer to sit anywhere other than the traditional desk and chair. This allows them to be comfortable as they complete academic tasks.

My Project

A classroom with abundant conversation and collaboration between students and teachers, project-based learning, and technology integration is vital to learning. As students grow, it is imperative that they learn to make good choices. Flexible seating will assist students with this life skill. Students will have the opportunity to choose where they learn best. Students also become more accountable for their learning when they are given choices.

I know that flexible seating will increase peer-to-peer collaboration and learning, as well as peer to teacher learning in my classroom.

Flexible seating will broaden my students’ choices of where and how they learn. No longer will they only have the choice of sitting at a desk or on the floor, but they can choose to sit on a comfortable floor chair, on an exercise ball, or on a wobble cushion. With your help, they will have a variety of options.
