Ms. Kollman from Phoenix AZ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

First Grade Classroom Materials

My students need flexible seating options to help their minds stay focused while their body can fidget like all kids need to do. The classroom also needs a rug for whole group learning.

My Students

This year is my first year as a full-time teacher, I just graduated from college in December. I will be teaching first grade at a Title I school. All students at the school receive free lunch and breakfast, and a majority of them are ELL. I have not met them yet but I know they are going to be fantastic. I cannot wait to set up my classroom for these incoming learners.

First grade is a crucial time for learning reading skills.

The addition of these materials to the classroom will help my students learn at their highest potential.

My Project

The large classroom rug allows our curriculum to be the most effective. Our curriculum requires the students to come together for a lesson and then to go and work individually or in small groups on that concept just learned.

Flexible seating is an addition to a classroom that allows students to feel excited and energetic about learning.

Students can come in and see options rather than a table and uncomfortable chair everyday all day. They see the ability to flex and wiggle the way their active little bodies need while they learn important skills that will carry them through life.
