Mrs. Croke from Thomasville NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for 1st Graders!

My students need flexible seating in my classroom. Flexible seating allows the students to stay engaged and focused. Plus, these seats make learning fun!

My Students

I teach first grade at a school that is 100 percent free and reduced lunch. My students are so excited to learn every day, and I absolutely LOVE my job!

We would love to have flexible seating in the classroom so they have choices of where to sit and seats that provide movement and engagement.

My students have a hard time sitting still in their seats. They are excited about their friends, excited about learning, AND they are only 6 years old! I also have those students who fall asleep in the chairs and on the carpet.

My Project

My students would really benefit from flexible seating. They either get to sit on the carpet or in their chairs during the school day. Sometimes they have a hard time sitting still or even focusing and falling asleep.

I feel like new chairs and seats would help them stay focused and engaged during the day, which in turn will help them tremendously with their academics!

I would love to get 3 bean bag chairs, 5 stools and 5 yoga balls for my students. These are brightly colored and fun seats for the students to learn on. They are easily movable so we can create groups or change seats around if necessary.
