My students need more flexible seating to work more comfortably in our classroom on a daily basis.

My Students

In a district where funds are limited and expectations are high, I am turning to the helping hearts and hands of DonorsChoose to help my superstar students exceed all expectations and aim higher than they ever thought possible. Shoot for the moon; if you fall, you fall among the stars.

Being in the heart of one of the poorest school districts in New Jersey, it is hard to find enough resources for our students.

My students need your help to ensure their success this year.

However, working in an environment with limited resources makes this difficult for them. My students have such a drive to learn and a passion for school and it would mean the world to them if you could help us!

My Project

In a classroom that is completely student-centered, it is essential for flexible seating to available to my students. In our classroom, we are constantly working in groups and in stations activities and I want my students to be able to work in the most comfortable environment possible. Some of my students struggle to sit still in the classroom, and with the ball chairs and bean bag chair, I am hoping these students will be helped to be more focused and improve their learning.

My students are able to complete their best work when they are able to sit where they are most comfortable.

They are constantly begging me to bring in more relaxed seating than the current desks we have. The balance balls will come in handy for my students who have some extra energy they need to get out. These will allow my students to be comfortable and release some energy without causing any disruptions to the rest of the class. I would love to be able to bring these supplies to our classroom to ensure they are able to work to the best of their ability!
