Mrs. Woerner from Newark DE is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

My students need active learning stools to help them stay focused during the day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is full of eager learners who are also very active. Many of my students come from what is considered low-income families. 100 percent of the students in my school receive free lunch and breakfast. My students come from situations adults would have a difficult time dealing with. Yet these children walk into my room every day and give me everything they can. I want to give them everything I can to help them achieve their full potential. These students would do anything to help each other.

My Project

School is work. Being comfortable to do that work is important. The active learning stools I have requested make it easier for students to focus and complete their classwork seated on a more comfortable stool.

Studies have shown that students who move when they learn do better in school.

These learning stools allow movement during the day, even when students are testing. The learning stools help all students, but especially those who have diagnosed ADHD.

I currently have a few active learning stools in my classroom, but since my class size has increased by 50% this year, I need more stools so more students can sit comfortably!
