Mrs. Schulenberg from Bartlett IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need a classroom that focuses on flexible seating. Students will use the various seating options (mats, stools, lap desks, and a balance ball) to find unique seating that suits their needs.

My Students

Our school is filled with incredible students. They are hardworking and want to do well in school. I would like a chance to introduce flexible seating to this year's group of students.

My class consists of 30 amazing 6th graders!

My class is filled with so many wonderful students. I can't wait to work with them throughout the year and help them feel more comfortable and to help them work together to be the best 6th graders they can be.

Thank you very much for considering donating to our classroom!

My Project

My students will be able to use the yoga ball, stools, and yoga mats during the school day. My class will have various seating options to ensure they can find the best way to complete their classwork. Students will utilize the laptop desks so they can work on their laptops anywhere throughout the classroom. The exercise mat will be available for students who want to read or work in our classroom library.

My class will be reading A Fish in A Tree this year.

If I have 30 copies, each student will be able to have his/her own book to read this fantastic book that focuses on the strengths of ALL students.
