Ms. Martinez from Lakeside CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Student-Centered Classroom Design: Flexible Seating For Motivation and Engagement

My students need 6 wobble chairs to use instead of regular chairs, which will increase their focus, engagement and motivation in class.

My Students

Every day I ask "Class, class" and they respond "si, si, si". And with that they are ready to learn, sing, and have fun every day.

Our motto is "Do everything with love" and follow the 7 Habits for Successful Kids.

Our class is a Spanish Immersion Class. All my students are English speakers and they think that I only speak Spanish. It is hilarious see them trying to teach me new words in English. It is their mission to teach me English. They love to learn something new every day.

My Project

The Reggio Emilia educational philosophy sees children as protagonists of their learning and the classroom environment as the "third teacher" (Gandini, 1998, p.177). That is why this school year I'll like to create a new classroom arrangement for my students.

I'll like to create a flexible classroom environment that promotes creativity, collaboration and critical thinking.

I'll like to have an environment with flexible seating options for my students to choose what help them to concentrate and work better. This school year, I'll like to create an inviting environment in which my students can have the opportunity to choose and explore. For example, the wobble chairs are an excellent option for students that need to be moving while their work without being a distraction to others.

Also, the Wobble Chairs will provide my students with more options for them to be comfortable as they are reading or working collaboratively. I'll like to increase their engagement and motivation for learning by giving them the opportunity to decide where to sit and do their work.

More over, research says that physical activity and cognitive functions have a direct relationship (Hillman,2009). I'll like to create a dynamic environment that supports wellness for all my students. Having different options around the classroom is going to provide my students with the opportunity to move around and recreate their working space everyday.
