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

Ch-Ch-Ch -Changes....Made Easier with Help

My students need stools, cushions, and organization! Ch-Ch-Ch changes......turn to face the changes! In our new school, we have lots of great things given to our students. However, my students still need options for flexible seating.

My Students

My students are go-getters. They are willing to tackle any challenge and try new things. The best thing about them is the mentality to "try something new and improve themselves".

All students deserve the chance to learn and grow to their highest potential.

It's also so important to provide students with tools for our growing, changing, and fast paced world. The students in my class are positive, proactive, and ready to tackle anything! Every child strives to find and do their personal best.

My Project

Create a cool, collaborative, creative community! I am asking for stack stools and floor cushions to allow for flexible seating in my classroom environment. Students will use stools to collaborate and create projects together with easily movable seating. Our old seats are heavy and get in the way when we want to group together. Our new stools and cushions will break down barriers to allow for communication, creativity and easy collaboration. The magazine files will keep all this awesome learning - organized and productive.

When we work together, create together, talk together, develop together - the whole class becomes better together.

These materials will help us to expand our work, use our spaces wisely for each and every project. This flexible seating also allows for each student to have the type of seat that helps them to learn best.
