Mrs. Hoard from Sunland CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take a Seat and Stay Awhile...In Style!

My students need flexible seating choices! Bean bag chairs, portable laptop/writing tables, and balance balls will help my wiggly students stay focused and comfortable!

My Students

I love my students because they are eager and excited to learn. Most of my class includes students who are designated English Language Learners and/or receive Resource services.

"We can sit anywhere we want to?!" This was the incredulous response of my students on the first day of school.

They are motivated by the opportunity to use the alternative seating in my classroom, and therefore, are motivated to work harder. They enjoy collaborating on projects and helping each other out.

These students had to share a classroom of almost 40 students for the last two years! Having elbow room in my classroom is a dream come true for them!

My Project

Alternative seating, such as balance balls, will help my students to improve their focus and concentration, plus promote healthy posture and build core strength! Bean bag chairs and portable lap desks will encourage students to move around the room and work comfortably, whether working independently or in a collaborative group.

My students will be so excited to have new options for alternative seating!

I can't wait to see the excitement and motivation that ensues when students can choose the seating that suits their learning style best. Who knows? They may even stay awhile longer...reading, writing, collaborating, discovering, working, and learning!
