Mrs. Dekkan from Temple Terr FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flex for Success!

My students need to be able to get comfortable. The wobble chairs are lifesavers and the round floor table will be wonderful for group work.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic, highly motivated, and competitive. They love to dance, play, and are always on the move.

As much I push them to be the best that they can be, they end up pushing me even harder.

I teach 3rd grade at a high poverty and low income school. No matter what hardships they're facing, they never give up and always encourage one another. If ever they're feeling down, for whatever reason, they always try to lift each other's spirits and won't stop til they get each other smiling.

My Project

My students are tired of sitting in normal student desks. They constantly fidget because they don't get nearly enough time outside or time to run around. Many of my students like to sit on the floor and I'id like to make it a bit more comfortable for them to do so. Having the low round table will help my students with group work and group reading in a spot where they like to be. Some of my students have experienced wobble chairs in other classrooms, and, I must say those chairs do wonders! The students stay focused and get their energy out! I have quite the energetic bunch.
