Mrs. Binger from Rochester NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

On a daily basis, the teachers and students at my school work hard to close the achievement gap. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunch. In addition, my 5th grade classroom is filled with diverse learners. I have students with special needs, English language learners, and students who require advance academics.

Although the differences among my students are evident, they have developed a classroom community where they work as a team to help each other grow.

In my classroom you will often find students coaching one another and providing encouragement. "Mistakes help your brain grow" is one of their favorite quotes. My students are very eager to learn, but the variety of academic and social-emotional needs in my room require additional support.

My Project

I'm looking to provide my students with more flexible seating options in my classroom. My students love to learn and engage in challenging activities. However, many of my students need more flexibility than the traditional seating found in classrooms can provide. Currently, my classroom has two "wiggle" stools, which does not meet the needs of all of my students would benefit from their use. The activity stools will be used in whole group, small group, and independent time to provide students with the ability to move during instruction. The dry erase table top will allow me to support students in small group instruction, while they show their thinking right on the table!
