Ms. Bermudez from Winston Salem NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Enriching the Classroom, Enriching the Mind

Help me give my students balance balls and a flexible seating table and chair bundle (Flex-Space Collaborative Floor Work Space Bundle) to be able to learn in a 21th-century classroom.

My Students

I am a second-grade immersion teacher in an IB school. My second graders learn mostly in Spanish while applying a global perspective to the entire curriculum. The goal of the program is for students to be able to fluently read and write in both English and Spanish while applying a global mindset to their everyday lives.

While being an amazing school and program, this school is a Title I school that has had budget cuts, but that does not keep these kids from being amazing.

I want to provide them with an amazing learning environment.

My Project

A 21st-century classroom needs to adapt to our students. I want to do this by providing flexible seating options so that they can be comfortable every day.

The table and chair bundle will provide enough room for 4 students to work comfortably and the balance ball seats will provide options for students to use during small group instruction.

Students need to be able to enjoy the space where they are 8 hours a day and what better way than to give them flexible seating options so that they do not have to sit in a hard plastic chair all while they work.
