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

Flexible Seating

My students need this flexible seating option. My students need this area to use instead of a desk. It is important that the futon is leather so it can easily be wiped down.

My Students

My students are from a variety of backgrounds and come to a rural school outside of a larger city. My kiddos range from kindergarten to fifth grade. They stay in their regular classroom most of the day but come to me for one or more subjects in which they need some extra special attention. My students are hard workers and are working toward learning how to control their environment so they can do their very best work. I truly have the best students!

My Project

This year I have the pleasure of moving into a brand new classroom. I work hard to create an environment where all my students can do their best. I have lots of flexible seating options in my classroom such as special chairs, comfy carpets, trapezoid tables, round tables, desks and a reading area. However, some of my students need a big comfortable space to use while working independently and I am working toward creating a comfortable relaxing home environment. I'm asking for a leather futon so that it is easy to clean and light to move. Thank you in advance for considering this project.
