Mrs. Lopez from Norwalk CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Fifth Graders!

My students need the flexible seating options such as the stand up desk with adjustable height and the Stack Stools. They will be able to focus more on learning with all these various seating arrangements.

My Students

My students come from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds. Some students are learning Spanish as a second language and are immersed in the language. These kids are excited to learn another language surrounded by supporting classmates. Other students are new to the country and are learning English with the support of their classmates as well. I also have students who are learning a third language and are thriving in our school.

All my students are growing and active tweens who need lots of space to learn in a flexible and comfortable environment.

My Project

Flexible seating is more than a craze, it's a great way me to ensure that all students learn. My students will benefit from all the flexible seating options I am selecting for this project. The adjustable desk will give students who like to stand up the option to complete their math assigments free of a seat.

Both girls and boys need to focus on learning but that is very hard when you are seating in an uncomfortable seat!

The balance balls, stools and lap desks will give the whole class a chance to find their preferred seating and be productive.
