Today is Mrs. Francis's birthday! Today only, enter BIRTHDAY when you donate to double your donation.

Mrs. Francis from Rcho Sta Marg CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Feel As If You Are Camping at School

My students need something to sit on instead of the ground when working out. The camping chairs would work great; they really love working independently outside.

My Students

I have been teaching for 22 yrs and just started teaching 4th grade. These kids love to have the freedom to be independent whenever they can. I have heard so much about flexible seating and how it gives the kids more confidence in their own learning.

I love seeing when a student has had that "wow" moment and starts to thrive.

I want to have a inviting learning environment in my classroom. I think flexible seating is a great start to helping my students learn in different places.

My Project

4th Graders love to do their work other than at a desk, so I allow them to go outside. They have to sit on the ground to do their work. I wanted the quest junior chairs for them to take outside and feel productive while doing work outside. I was going to spend my own money when I just got an email from my principal about DonorsChoose.

I have not used this kind of giving in all my years of teaching so it kind of feels funny.

I know my class will so enjoy these chairs to sit outside to do their work.
