Mrs. Donnelly from Steelton PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Comfort Corner

My students need an area rug and bean bag chairs to provide a comfortable area for them to practice concepts while I work with small groups.

My Students

My students come from an urban area where many come from low-income homes and diverse backgrounds. For many, school is their safe place. Every day they come with a willingness to learn.

My students and I work hard to foster a classroom in which all students feel safe to share their thoughts and ideas.

We began early in the year to build relationships and explore the strengths and weaknesses of each individual. Once these relationships are established, my students feel comfortable and willing to take risks.

My classroom is the grade level math class. Students look forward to unit STEM based projects where they can think creatively and apply many of the concepts they have been learning. Watching the looks on their faces when they collaborate and problem solve is priceless!

My Project

The area rug and bean bag chairs will be used to provide students with a comfortable area for learning. While I work with small groups of students, the other students in the classroom work independently to practice concepts and skills.

A Classroom Comfort Corner will build motivation for students to sit and practice concepts.

When students have a comfortable and attractive place to sit, they get excited about learning. Currently, my classroom has only standard student desks and cold, hard metal chairs.The Classroom Comfort Corner will provide an attractive place for students to work with partners or small groups to practice math facts and skills during their independent work time.

I have seen students get excited when given the opportunity to work in alternative seating areas and look forward to the opportunity to provide them with a Classroom Comfort Corner in my classroom.
