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

Students, Find Your Seat!

My students need a variety of seating options that cater to their specific learning needs and that also encourage a comfortable environment that mimics that of a home.

My Students

After just recently meeting my new students, I can already tell that this is going to be one of my best years yet! Almost every student told me that math was their favorite subject and I can't tell you how excited that makes me. They all seemed so eager to start school and their excitement has spurred within me a drive and passion like never before. We haven't had one day of class yet, but I'm already prepared to put in any work required to make this one of my best years yet.

Most of the students at my school come from a low socioeconomic household, with over half receiving free and reduced lunch.

The county that I work in is also very rural and access to internet is extremely limited. It my hope that with a fully funded project, I will be able to offer them something new and excited at school, but at the same time make them feel at home and comfortable in their learning environment.

My Project

This school year, I've been inspired by one of my co-workers to implement a flexible seating arrangement in my classroom. I have witnessed firsthand the success she has seen through the use of wobble stools, rolling stools, floor seats, etc. Big, bulky, hard, and uncomfortable desks are becoming a think of the past. Children cannot freely move and one desk takes up entirely too much space in a classroom. As a math teacher, this is valuable space that could be devoted to special math center areas.

I've selected two different styles of stools and one rectangle table to get me started on the flexible seating journey.

By finding a seat that makes them feel comfortable and at ease, my students will then be able to apply more focus on the academic and social goals before them.
