Mrs. Cofone from Manchester NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexibility Focused!

Help me give my students alternative seating like the Go Anywhere chair, balance ball chair, laptop standing table and the surface portable lap desks that will provide them with optimal movement.

My Students

I teach 19 amazing second graders who love to learn and move!

My hope is to give my students flexible seating options to help the focus, while welcoming their movement to learn while wiggling.

My students' levels range from basic skills to gifted and talented. With that said, no matter their level or different learning styles the majority of my class has a difficult time sitting to remain focused to complete daily tasks.

I can't wait to see what these nineteen students will be able to achieve when provided with seating options and other tools to help them achieve all of their goals.

My Project

My hope it to boost my students' focus by offering them several flexible seating options. The standing desk, floor lap desks, go anywhere seats and the balance ball chair will allow my students the flexibility and the movement they so need and desire.

Flexible seating options will provide my students with the opportunity to work, grow, and learn together.

Students will easily be able to choose a comfortable area in the classroom where they will be able to stay focused and do their best work.

The standing desk will help my students with ADHD to be able to allow them to stand while getting their work done in order to allow them movement. The balance ball chair would help my students with ADHD to help them focus in order for them to bounce while working.

With your donation, you will not only help my students in the classroom, but you will also be helping my future students. This is a gift that will keep on giving year after year.
