Ms. McGuire from Greeley CO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating Options for Reading!

Help me give my students a variety of seating options, including but not limited to: yoga balls, cushioned rest mats, shell chairs, and more! I've also requested a few grade-level books, as well.

My Students

While the majority of my students qualify as at-risk, low-income, and have an assortment of individualized needs in the classroom, they come with a strong drive to learn, perform to the best of their abilities, and exceed expectations. They are hardworking, resilient, and actively volunteer and participate in the local community. A large number of our students participate in multiple extracurricular activities, willingly spend Saturday mornings assisting teachers in the building, and have received high honors in competitive STEM, theater, and musical events. The staff and students at our school truly are a tight-knit Bengal family!

My Project

Modern research in the field of education supports the idea that students learn best in an autonomy-driven, flexible environment that promotes both a sense of community and individuality at the same time. In order to provide the best classroom experience for my diverse preteen learners, I’m humbly asking for donations to help purchase a variety of seating options in an attempt to create more student choice, honor all learning styles, and decrease the amount of distractions present in a traditional classroom setup. Having a variety of furniture enhances individual and group work while creating a calm atmosphere to focus in. Any help is appreciated! These kids are totally worth every penny.
