Ms. Bingman from Newport KY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Education - Our First Choice

My students need freedom and opportunity, and they work best when given choices. By having multiple seating choices in our classroom, they will be more motivated to work diligently every day!

My Students

My students are creative, loving, and energetic! They love to learn, explore, and ask questions about the world around them. My students spend a large amount of time in our classroom every day, and making the space feel comfortable to each and every student will be crucial to our success!

Each student learns differently, so having different spaces in our room for them to choose from will help them reach their full potential!

By giving my students the freedom to make positive choices about their environment and education, they will be better prepared for their bright futures!

My Project

My students deserve to feel comfortable in the atmosphere in which they spend most of their time. By having a choice of where to sit while working, our students will be able to explore and create in ways they may have never imagined. I am requesting bean bag and balance ball seats.

With our mix of flexible seating and technology integration, our students will get a feel for the real world they will soon be entering.

As our school is 1:1 with iPads, movement around the room is already utilized. With new stylus pens and flexible seating options, we will be able to reach new heights this school year!
