Mrs. Henningsen from Ontario CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Universal Design for All Through Flexible Seating

Help me give my students an inviting UDL space to be creative and collaborate—with 4 cozy chairs and a low-to-the-ground table that will help build a classroom with more flexible seating.

My Students

Students in my "Discovery Center" are struggling, below-level readers who just need an opportunity to have skills and strategies reviewed and retaught at a slower pace, in a smaller group setting. We share even the tiniest successes to make sure students know they are making progress. Many of them have fallen through the cracks and don't have the confidence to raise their hands or share opinions in their general class. My classroom is designed with some flexible seating, but it is difficult to meet the needs of varying body sizes.

A touch of TLC and self-esteem building goes a long way.

My goal, every day, is to make sure my students know I care about their success. Providing alternative and flexible seating makes them feel like they belong.

My Project

One size does not fit all. My classroom is set up to meet the needs of students in grades 1-5 who struggle with reading and literacy skills (as well as self-esteem). Groups of 15 to 20 students come to me for 40-minutes a day for reading intervention. It is difficult to meet the seating needs of six-year-olds and 11-year-olds all one size chair. The cozy chairs and a low-to-the-ground table would be ideal for flexible classroom seating, and since the chairs have cushioned back supports that adjust to the perfect position no matter the age of the student, they would work for all of my students.
