Mrs. Bergsteinsson from Dublin CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Graders Need Flexible Seating!

My students need the Flex-Space Cozy Work Space Bundle from Lakeshore for flexible seating in our classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is made up of a diverse group of first graders. My students come from various ethnic and racial backgrounds. As a new first grade teacher, I aim to provide all the necessary materials for my students to grow and succeed!

My students come from all different walks of life, yet they are all excited and eager to learn at school.

They love education and love learning, and I want to ensure they have all the necessary materials to be successful!

My Project

My first graders are active learners who love to move around the room the learn. The Flex-Space Cozy Workplace Bundle from Lakeshore Learning would allow for our flexible seating dreams to come true! With these new seating options, students can learn in comfortable spaces throughout the room. This will allow students to collaborate with one another more effectively and independently

Flexible seating allows for students to make choices that are best for their learning.

Many of my students cannot sit at desks all day and do their best work. This bundle with the bench and chair will allow students to work in our classroom library and move the chairs around the room to learn. Flexible seating is crucial for students at this age and I want to be able to provide them with many options!
