Ms. Barnett from Beaverton MI is requesting classroom basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Comforting, Flexible Classroom Solutions for Energetic Artists!

Help me give my students an outlet for their energy so they can stay busy creating themselves! My wishlist includes "exercise" bands for student desks to help expend excess energy and a few non-traditional seating options!

My Students

I am the combined junior high and senior high school visual art teacher- I have students from a smaller, rural town and see roughly 160 students each day. We were impacted heavily by the Edenville/Sanford flood this past year and are trying our best to recover and grow through the experience. My students come from a variety of backgrounds with a lot of love and passion to share. We have the opportunity to teach face to face this year and my students and I are loving it! We would love your help in making our classroom a warm, safe, productive environment.

My Project

Students will be using the chair bands for energetic foot movements and the balance ball chairs for more stability and to assist in focusing on projects. They will be able to expend any extra energy while still safely sitting in their own space. The light covers will help create an even warmer, more comfortable atmosphere for budding artists and deserving students.

Students will be able to walk into a safe, comfortable space for creating artwork and developing the self-confidence that they deserve.

Flexible seating solutions, like a balance ball or foot bands around desks, help channel my student's positive energy and continue to create at the same time.
