Mrs. Keener from Hickory NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for All!

Help me give my students new flexible seating. I am asking for wobble stools for my kids that can't sit still, portable lap desks for my kids that love to sit in the floor, and some new pillows!

My Students

My students are an energetic, fun, and loving group of 5th graders. They love to have come to school and interact with their peers by doing group and partner work. We love to work together to solve problems and complete projects.

My students love to move around the room and not be confined to their desks.

We don't have a lot of money to purchase new furniture for every classroom. We are a Title I school, and the money that we are allocated goes towards getting technology.

My Project

These new flexible seating options will help my all kids in multiple ways! They love to sit anywhere other than their desks!

The wobble stools, portable lap desks and pillows will be used by all kids!

The wobble stool will help those kids who love to rock back in forth in their chairs. This allows them to have safer rocking options where they hopefully wont fall in the floor! The portable lap desks will allow students to sit around the room in the floor while still having easy work spaces. My kids love sitting in the floor so this will allow them to do so while still being productive. The pillows will also allow students to sit in the floor more comfortably. They can use them to lay and read a book, sit against a wall or simply sit on them in the floor.

The pillows and bean bags I already have always get gone fast so I know they will appreciate having extra options so that every student can have flexible seating.
