Ms. Mueller from Salt Lake City UT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Student Choice

Help me give my students flexible seating to allow them choice in the classroom while giving them the chance to wobble, bounce, lean or stand to increase oxygen flow to the brain.

My Students

I am currently teaching at a Title I inner city school. Most of my kindergartners come from diverse backgrounds with English being their 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th language. The students are eager learners and are so excited to be entering school for the first time! My kiddos are so loving and happy to be in the classroom with students their age to build relationships and friendships.

"Teacher, I love you.

I love school." At this age children are so eager and engaged to learn! They are exploring new materials, learning how to write, improving their fine motor development, and using hands-on experiences to further their understanding of concepts taught.

My Project

Flexible seating would allow children to feel empowered right away they walk into the room. This type of seating will allow children to make a choice to where they would like to sit and with whom, which allows them to feel independent and empowered in their classroom.

The sense of touch is stimulated while wobbling, sitting, and rocking on these chairs.

This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information better.

Lastly, flexible seating promotes collaboration between students. It is easy to work in a group setting by moving light weight seats around instead of heavy desks and chairs.
