Ms. Freitag from Iowa Colony TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Reading!

My students need ways to move without getting up or distracting them from their work. Wobble chairs allow them to move throughout small group or independent reading, letting them have greater focus and stamina.

My Students

"Can we read all day?" That is the phrase I hear most mornings when I greet my classes. They love to read. My students beg to get comfortable and read their latest find from the library or the most treasured tale from their own collection. Many of my students yearn to soak up the stories that launch them into a different country, continent, universe or even galaxy.

My students come from all different kinds of backgrounds.

There are some students who live in different housing. They have different living situations as well. Some live with parents, others with grandparents and even some that are waiting for their forever home. Hurricane Harvey hit our area hard. From being out of school for a week to some students being displaced, last year has been anything but normal. Through it all, these students in my class are here to learn and need the supplies to help them have a well balanced education.

My Project

The Wobble chairs and seat cushions I have chosen will allow students to focus on the assignments given to them with greater stamina.

Many of my students have a hard time focusing on a task and in fourth grade, that is key to being successful.

The reading passages are longer and the students need to be able to remember what they read. We also focus on writing in fourth grade. This is a difficult subject for many students. My goal is to create an atmosphere where there are no hindrances so that they are free to create and write. How exciting!
