This InstaGrant funds furniture to allow students more choice and flexibility with regard to where they sit in the classroom (different types of chairs vs. on the carpet/floor). It also allows students to select seating with movement opportunities while doing group/class work. Many studies indicate that movement helps to stimulate brain function and alertness. This grant will help young children become more invested in their learning because it will give them a choice in their approach to the learning process and allow them to begin to recognize what helps them do their best learning.
