Ms. Angelucci from Aldie VA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Working and Wiggling!

My students need to have different seating options to learn best such as Bosu balls and Hokki stools.

My Students

My first grade students are an energetic bunch! They love to learn new things, share, work together and do anything hands-on. As I continue to get to know them this school year, I realize that they are itching to soak up as much information as possible, but at times struggle to sit through the multiple lessons each day. I have been thinking and I believe I have found the answer...flexible seating!

I want to provide my students with a learning environment that will help them flourish!

By giving my enthusiastic first graders choice in where they sit, I know they will be able to wiggle and work. My students come from a wide variety of different countries and cultures. I want to continue creating a strong classroom environment and make sure they are as successful as possible.

My Project

My students work best when they are wiggling. Choosing their own seats helps them to not only wiggle and work, but learn about making responsible decisions that will positively impact their learning. They have already made great progress and we want to get some more of our favorite seats. When students are able to move, they are able to stay focused on their work and be more productive.

Great learning is occurring in our classroom.

We are hoping to get more Hokki Stools and Bosu balls. These seating options are the favorite and most popular. Hokki Stools allow students to sit at a regular height table and wiggle, while Bosu balls are used at lowered tables and students balance on them in a cross legged position.
