Mrs. P. from Greenfield MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I am a second grade teacher at a Title I Expanded Learning Time School. We have a longer day which offers various enrichment activities as well as the time to teach to our students' needs. Over the past couple years I have noticed many of my students have had a hard time focusing on tasks due to various learning styles and needs including ADHD and trauma. Our students come to our school from various walks of life, some from our town, some coming for a short period of time and some living in a long-term homeless shelter. It is clear in our building, that once you are a part of our community, you are a part of our lives forever.

At my school, we are a family, and the students are the heart of our family.

Teachers and families work together to provide the best experiences we can to our students. We work hard to make our classrooms and hallways a safe place where students can thrive in a comfortable environment made especially for them.

My Project

My students love flexible seating. They love to choose where they sit in the classroom to do their best work. I would love to create spaces in my room that better suit the needs of my students. Currently, we have ball seats, crate seats and wobble stools.

My students enjoy working on the floor, so I would like to provide my second graders with some cushioning to make this flex seating option a bit more comfortable!

I would like a short coffee table to support students who like working on the floor. I will pair this table with inflatable bagel seats. I would like to use wobble cushions as a choice for students sitting either on floor or in a regular chair.
