Ms. Whitman from Jessup MD is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Needed In First Grade Classroom!

My students need balance ball seats in the classroom so they can be the best learners they can be!

My Students

Jessup Elementary is a school right next to the Fort Meade base in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. We serve many students who come from military families. My students love to move and have fun in the classroom. However, our school is in the process of being rebuilt and we lack a lot of outlets for our students to get out their energy. We need help in order to bring some more movement into the classroom so we can work harder!

My Project

These balance ball seats will make a difference in my children's education because they will serve as an outlet for their energy. My students sit in little chairs all day long, and I would like to use these bouncy seats as guided reading chairs.

Guided reading is the most important part of the day!

It is so important that my students focus on me and reading in this time so it would be wonderful if they could get their wiggles out while they do it. Thank you for helping my students become more successful readers and having a positive impact on our classroom!
