Mrs. Simpkins from Land O Lakes FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Cozy Little Couch

My students need comfortable seating in our reading center. It is extremely difficult to find “school approved” furniture. This couch would help to create a warm and welcoming environment for my students to love reading.

My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds. They are eager and willing to learn and look forward to coming to school each day. I love building relationships with them as they grow and change throughout the school year. My students impact my daily life. I grow as an educator with each new group of students. I strive to make a difference for them. My second graders are a motivated group with minds, ready to absorb like sponges, any and all learning.

My Project

Developing a love for learning at a young age is critical to foster a lifetime of learning. Giving students a safe and enjoyable place to snuggle up with a good book, or to read with a fellow classmate, creates memories that will stay with them forever. Our students deserve to feel comforted and safe when at school and this cozy couch is one piece to making our learning environment comfortable at school. This couch will instill a love of reading for our students, which will help their progression of reading throughout the school year and for many years to come.
