Mrs. Potter from Arma KS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Like to Move It!

Help me give my students these fantastic flexible seating options! The Zenergy Ball Chair would give my students a comfortable way to learn and stay active during class time. The kids would love the CanDo Donut Balls!

My Students

Currently, I have 12 amazing students in my classroom! Many of my students come from low income households, with a high percentage receiving free lunch. They love to learn, but often get bored with our traditional set-up. I am searching for ways to keep them engaged, in hopes to boost their educational experience!

Alternative seating would give my students the ability to move, groove, and learn!

I hope to meet the needs of all of my students by creating a warm and unique learning atmosphere!

My Project

My students are so excited to come to school each morning and give their very best- but at times, they get restless sitting in the hard, school issued chairs. I would love to ramp up our classroom and provide a unique learning experience in the form of flexible seating!

Allowing my students the ability to pick their seating choice first thing in the morning would give them what they need to succeed during the day!

This would make their learning experience more fun and safe, while giving them different options to best meet their needs!

My goal is to provide a classroom atmosphere that is as unique as my students. I believe, giving them the opportunity to move while also learning will help with focus, effort, and classroom management.
