Mrs. Teixeira from Patterson CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comfy Couch

Help me give my students more flexible seating options, with a comfy couch, which will allow them to focus more.

My Students

Every day I see that these are very determined and intelligent students. They are highly motivated and are always ready to work. My students come from a high poverty area. Our community is very supportive and try their best to ensure students get what they need. It is very beneficial to have seating that will help students focus. Wobble Stools are really good for students who have trouble focusing and sitting still.

We need more flexible seating in our class so my students can focus and succeed.

This alternative seating will help get the wiggles out since it is hard for students to sit in a regular chair all day. My students always put their best effort, and this project will be even more beneficial for them.

My Project

I have been able to give my students a few flexible seating options. I have noticed the huge difference that flexible seating has on the engagement of my students.

It is hard for students to sit in their regular chairs all day.

By having this Flex-Space Comfy Couch, it will be another space for them to do work or read and be comfortable when doing so. When they are comfortable, they are more focused and engaged. It also helps with classroom management because students always do their best because they want to use our flexible seating. I need more flexible seating because I have so many students who would benefit from it.
