Carpet, Saucer Chair and DIY Crate Seats for Flexible Seating!

My students need more options for flexible seating. We complete a lot of projects on the floor and we would love more carpet and other seating options to be more comfortable when working!

My Students

Our classroom is a place of challenge, discovery and collaboration. As 21st century learners, we are conducting research, testing out our ideas and completing hands-on steam projects. We are using small group instruction and rotating around the classroom in flexible groups.

We absolutely love a good math challenge and enjoy answering driving questions in science!

We are curious learners and we are always striving to push ourselves further within our fourth grade curriculum. Overall, we are a great team and have made some incredible projects this year! :)

My Project

We love having a comfortable classroom where we work our hardest and achieve our fourth grade goals! The carpet would allow an extra space for a small group to collaborate and the saucer chair and crate seating would be additional excitement for a flexible seating option.

Flexible seating gives students more choice to sit comfortably to work their very hardest!

We would greatly appreciate any donation to transform our classroom into a flexible seating space. Throughout the school day, there are many times we work on the floor. A carpet with the crate seating would be more comfortable as we work toward our fourth grade academic goals.
