Ms. Peters from Tuscola IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a Soft Workspace!

Help me give my students alternative seat options. The chairs and cushions included in the cart will help my students work without having to be on the hard tile floor.

My Students

My students, from Illinois, are just starting out on their academic journey. Our classroom theme is superheroes and I believe that all my students are superheroes waiting to be discovered. Our classroom community promotes acceptance, curiosity, and kindness.

My students are brand new learners and everything is new and exciting to them.

We are growing our brains and bodies at the same time.

We spend our days building, problem-solving, and learning. My students love to create and explore. Together, we are building their future!

My Project

With COVID putting restrictions on our classroom furniture, I had to remove my rug and pillows. I would like to offer students a way to work in a space other than their desks while still encouraging social distancing. My classroom floor is tile on top of concrete. I chose flexible seating options that can be easily wiped down to clean but can still give comfort to my students. The students will be able to take them to their floor space to work, create, build, or read.

Please help me make my student's first exposure to the classroom a positive and inviting one!
