Ms. Certo from Buffalo NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Hooray!!

Help me give my students the furniture they need to set their minds and bodies at ease. I have a set of five of these chairs at a lower table in my room and my students love them!

My Students

We are located in Buffalo, NY. Our school district has a rate of 82% economically disadvantaged children. Students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch. I have 25 students in my classroom this year.

Kindergarten is by far the BEST grade to teach!

Kindergarten students need choices in their everyday learning.

They need room to stretch and furniture that supports the movement that some of their bodies are constanly in. I work in a wonderful community. My students are very enthusiastic and are very eager to participate.

My Project

Students of all ages must be given the appropriate materials in order to learn. This goes far beyond quality lesson plans. We have come a very long way from the one room school house of yesterday. Students need options in where they sit as well. When we allow them options they have a greater chance of success. Flexible seating has come a long way. Wobble chairs are wonderful for the active bodies of a five year old. They would be able to focus more on assigned tasks. I know the funding of this project would make my students so happy. Please consider.
