Mrs. Quattrucci from Providence RI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Empowering All Students With Flexible and Comfortable Seating

My students need flexible seating options so they can feel empowered to choose the most comfortable and effective spots for themselves and maximize their own learning.

My Students

I have an energetic, inquisitive and enthusiastic group of 26 five and six-year-olds in the inner city of Rhode Island. They are eager to learn to read and write and count to 100! My students are so appreciative of each other and all that we do every day. They are culturally diverse and enjoy sharing their own unique experiences with the class. We learn from each other every day. My school is working hard to build community among families and staff and we have a safe, respectful environment.

My Project

These flexible seating options would make a HUGE impact in my classroom because they are designed with children’s comfort and success as the main priority. We have already been graciously blessed with some amazing flexible seating options. We are all so truly thankful because without the kindness and generousity of people that genuinely care we wouldn’t have any of these special and cherished items. We would really love to add wobble seats for the children that prefer to wiggle and wobble while they sit. The thing I really love about these is that they are safe and stable with a rounded base that allow children a little movement - without tipping them over! We would also really be grateful to have sturdy, comfortable, and long lasting portable lap desks which can be used for writing, working on a laptop, or playing independent learning games.

These added flexible seats would provide my classroom of 26 students and every future class with diverse options for every learner.

Empowering students to make seating choices that will maximize their comfort and success in school is important to me. I’m not a teacher that goes along with every new whim or fad but I’ve seen for myself what a few comfortable seating options can do and I’d really like to complete my classroom and allow EVERYONE the opportunity to be comfortable. I’d truly appreciate any help at all. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our project!
