Mr. Griffin from Holyoke MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Colorful Comfortable

Help me give my students comfortable, flexible seating so they can work in a variety of areas of the room.

  • $760 goal

This project expired on September 20, 2019.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from low income homes and live in apartments with not much area to play or move about. Many of my students are very bright and active and I want to them be goal setters and encouraging to others. I know that they made great progress last year and I want to continue the progression even further this year. We do small cooperative grouping and much partner work in different areas of the class. The seating can help foster working together.

My Project

The colorful chairs and storage bins will stand out and brighten up the drab color of the walls in the room. The comfortable chairs allow for my students with ADHD to sit comfortably with some freedom to move and can be used in various places in the classroom. They can focus more on the lessons and not distract others.

The colorful bins will help keep library organized by their favorite topics or authors.

They will also help with organizing notebooks for each subject making it easier for them to keep the class more organized. The class can locate the materials quicker so the students are engaged in learning quicker as well. The bins will help keep their desks more organized as well and cuts down on the clutter of their desks.
