Mrs. Dunlap from Modesto CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating and Echo for Classroom

My students need flexible seating and new ways to learn! We have regular desk chairs and my students get very fidgety. I want them to be able to have options in what to sit in!

My Students

My students come from different cultures, backgrounds, you name it! My students are special because they are excited to learn and I am excited to teach them! Since my students come from different backgrounds they will not all be the same reading level. With the donations I will be able to have a classroom library that my students can access at any time to read and learn more. My students deserve to have an amazing education and I want to provide that for them! A lot of my students are very fidgety due to either ADHD or just being silly 8 year olds! They need to be able to learn the way that will help them the best!

My Project

The new furniture will help my students be able to be attention longer and with less distractions. I know that with these seating options, my students will be able to stay in their seats while still getting their fidgets out and learning at the same time. Also, the Amazon Echo will be a fun way for my students to play games and learn daily facts! Having the exercise balls for my students to use will give them options on bouncing a little up and down in order to keep their focus on the lesson but still getting their fidgets out.
