Ms. Landers from Guilford VT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a Comfortable Learning Environment

My students need more seating! It's difficult for kids to sit in hard classroom chairs in every situation. These chairs would help them move and learn more comfortably!

My Students

My students are energetic, enthusiastic kiddos! They love to move and be active at all times! We are constantly doing body breaks, projects around place based education, and utilizing the beautiful nature outside our classroom walls!

One example of a technology project we focused on last year was implementing school news!

My students researched and wrote scripts to film weekly to keep our school updated on current events happening around us! It was a fantastic way to incorporate writing, public speaking, and hands-on learning. The kids loved it and the school gave us such great energy.

My students are bright, and are learning how to be their best selves. They are so insightful and love to learn. We have a blast in 3rd grade!

My Project

My students need to move! They are constantly asking to lay on the floor to learn, or get up for a walk. With the help of these wobble stools, they will be able to move and learn.

I want my classroom to have options for seating to make it a more comfortable learning environment.

It's hard enough for students to focus on learning and giving them the option of where to sit will do wonders for my kiddos!

By donating to my project, you will not only help children succeed, but you will help them become better learners and have a love for learning. I want students to be have the opportunity to choose how they learn in my room!
