Ms. Neuhoff from Fort Meade MD is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Fantastic Kindergarteners!

Help me give my students the option to comfortably sit on the floor with mats, or to learn while wiggling with wobble stools and cushions!

My Students

Our Kindergarten classroom is filled with energetic, passionate learners. Our school is a Title I school. Over half of our class receives free or reduced-price lunch.

Our classroom brings together students from all different backgrounds to explore and learn together!

Kindergarten is a huge year for development! We are learning how to read, write, count to 100, and add and subtract. However, in our classroom, we are learning so much more than our academics. We are realizing our creative talents through art and crafts. We are studying our environment and exploring what’s in the world. And, we are learning what it means to respect one another. We celebrate both our similarities and differences as one community of learners.

For many students in our class, Kindergarten is their first school experience since they did not go to preschool. My students love to explore and truly love coming to school each day. It is my passion to make sure students leave Kindergarten with a foundation of loving to learn as they continue in their public school experience.

My Project

My young students are just beginning their public education careers and are active learners!

Expecting 5 and 6 year olds to sit at tables for long hours each day is not developmentally appropriate.

Research shows that young learners benefit from moving while they learn! I would love to be able to provide various seating options.

The bath mats will allow my students to find a comfortable place on the floor to work. The wiggle cushions and wobble stools will allow my students to move while working at a table.

With your support, my students will have the necessary tools to become active and engaged learners!
