Mrs. Anderson from Hartford CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Antsy- Pantsy

My students need beanbag seats, comfy floor seats, lap desks and wobble chairs.

My Students

I have 18 students who come to my classroom eager to learn everyday. Although I teach in a Magnet School, many of the school supply funds have been cut out of the budget do to district and state budget cuts.

As a magnet school, we embrace our MicroSociety theme and pride ourselves in its integration of mathematics, writing, science and social studies into the curriculum, weaving it throughout our academic day.

Our students are all employed in ventures that encourage them to be productive and responsible citizens within our learning community.

At our school, we provide students with a rigorous academic learning environment built upon high expectations and inquiry based learning within our meaningful standards based curriculum. The MicroSociety philosophy creates powerful incentives for all children to learn.

My Project

My students come to school every day eager to learn and discover new things. Having to sit in their chair all day long can be challenging for most students. I have to say they are not the most comfy thing in the world.

Having new comfy bean bags, floor seats and lap desks to sit on in the classroom and read a book or discover new things will allow for ample learning to happen.

My students will love to sit on new wobble chairs to help them to stay engaged during small group lessons.This project will be the beginning of change within my classroom not only for the rest of this school year but during summer school and future school years.
