Mrs. McWhorter from Ringgold GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A New Adventure Awaits in Kindergarten! Our Room!

Help me give my students a warm and welcoming classroom to learn in. This year has been filled with uncertainty. I want my students to come in and be instantly happy by what they see. They deserve it!

My Students

Kindergartners come with no expectations. They just want to have fun and meet new friends! I want my students to feel happy and loved by the environment they will spend the majority of their days in. The room gives them their first impression of how our year will go.

My Project

I am moving from an upper grade to kindergarten. It’s starting all over really. I am so excited about teaching littles! However, the pandemic has set a tone for our society in recent months, and I simply want my students to feel like kindergarten is their safe and welcoming second home. The flexible seating will allow for small group instruction, while the chart materials will be utilized in whole group calendar time. The rug will assist the students in being aware of personal space. Help me make their first year in school the best!
