Mrs. Silcock from Chicago IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in the Classroom!

My students need alternative seating in the classroom to help them find a space that works best for them. Having stools, wobble seats, cushions and soft areas in the classroom, will inspire my students.

My Students

Throughout the school year, I have the honor of working with some of the most amazing young individuals who bring with them a variety of experiences. The students at our school represent the entire world. I feel my students are continually trying their best, and I will always try my best to guarantee they will make progress throughout the school year with me.

My students drive me to reach greater heights in providing the most ideal learning environment for them.

A place where they can be inspired by others and themselves.

My Project

When I work, I want to be comfortable, and sometimes it is not at a desk. This new classroom furniture I have requested will provide my students with many different options besides a hard chair. They can pull the stools together as they read and discuss their favorite stories. My students will be able to quietly share a book on the sofa. My students may want to pull out a cushion on which to lie down on to finish up their writing project. Students spend so much time in the classroom; they need to be comfortable.

Finding a spot in the classroom where they can work comfortably and in peace is priceless.

Help my students gain a classroom that feels like a home away from home!
