My Students

All of my students come from a low-income family or a single-parent household. These children have so many struggles that they encounter every day, but they still come to school every day with smiles on their faces. My children in my class are funny and tell me all the time how they enjoy coming to school because they feel comfortable in my class. I have some children with other abilities that I try my best to make them feel included in our classroom throughout the whole day. I have an amazing class.

My Project

I am asking for a flex seating bundle set that a group of children can use at once. I could have a group of children work together comfortably in a space where they can sit.

Flex seating group time will encourage social skills among all the students.

I see this bundle being a huge go to for all students when it’s their time to be there and work together.

Some of my students need a smaller environment to work better in, and this bundle will be a great asset to my class.

During technology time, these flex chairs and table will be helpful for them to learn with their iPads. Please help these students to feel comfortable at school.
