Ms. Pettis from Depue IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Comfortable Place To Sit

Help me give my students places to sit and read or do in class work comfortably.

  • $478 goal

This project expired on April 28, 2020.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students in my class are kindergarten through fifth graders who are enthusiastic and enjoy a challenge. This is great because they come to me requiring support in their regular classes in which they are struggling for a variety of reasons. I am newly assigned to this position, I have a new classroom, and am looking forward to instilling a love of reading and math in my classroom.

I will be assisting twenty or more students across these six grade levels.

My Project

I am in a new classroom and a new position, providing extra reading and math help to students that need it. Currently, my kindergarten through 5th-grade students have one short table with small chairs. This type of seating works for my littles!

Having flexible options for seating helps motivate students to stay on task.

My big kids prefer to work at the taller table or on the carpet when they read. Some like to stand but for extended work, this will provide seating at my taller table for them. The floor chairs will provide some comfortable floor seats for paired reading and partner work for all my students.
