Ms. Sleight from New Bedford MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Redesign

My students need 5 stools and bean bag chairs to work productively in the classroom. My classroom furniture is over 50 years old and all different shapes and sizes! My kids need to feel comfortable.

My Students

I teach 22 eager second graders in an urban 100-year-old school where education is very important to all the teachers. Our school is an English Language Learner inclusion school where I teach students with diverse learning disabilities and have students who speak no English at all.

My students need to come to a classroom that feels like home.

Ninety percent of my students qualify for free/reduced-price lunch and come from difficult home lives. My hope is for my classroom to feel like a home of its own.

My Project

My school building has furniture that is over 50 years old. Our current desks and chairs are all sorts of shapes and sizes. Many of my kids have a hard time sitting in the adult-sized chairs. By having the option to use a stool or move to a bean bag chair they will feel more apt to spend time working instead of rushing to get out of their seats.

By giving them more options and flexibility to work throughout the room, my kids will see our classroom as a home and spend more time focused and less time readjusting.
