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

Comfortable Learning Environment for All

Help me give my students some new stools for our small group table so that students can have more comfortable seating for when they are working with a teacher or their peers to complete small group assignments.

My Students

I work at an amazing school as a 5th grade teacher. Our mission statement is “Inspiring kind leaders; preparing for bright futures.”

Our school is made up of 50% low-income families as well as 60% students with English as a second language.

It is our job to help them find their voice and be ready for their future. In my classroom, I am hoping to create a flexible, collaborative learning environment where students can feel comfortable to express themselves and can be successful every day. I'm hoping my students can learn many things and can challenge and push themselves to reach their potential!

My Project

In our 5th grade classroom, we strive to have a collaborative, comfortable environment for all students. Adding in some new flexible seating can only enhance our learning environment to make it an amazing place for all learners. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement.

These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
