Mrs. Holzhauer from Champaign IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I have nineteen 3rd graders and six 2nd graders. I teach a 2/3 gifted split class. My students learn at a grade level higher than other classes. They are very intelligent and always are looking for a challenge. I teach at an Art Magnet themed school, and we are constantly integrating the Arts into our lessons.

My students love to learn and think outside the box!

My students also like to move while learning and work in their own space.

My Project

My students need the opportunity to make choices about their learning environment. With these flexible seating choices, my students will be able to do that. They will also be able to focus better and be more engaged.

I think giving my students different options for seating will help them take ownership of their work.

I need portable lap desks for my students to be able to work on the floor. I also need 2 benches where my students can choose to work instead of a standard desk. I also need 2 balance ball chairs for my students with ADHD to move around.
