Mrs. Smith from Bradenton FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

Help me give my students additional seating options that will help them learn comfortably, and make our classroom library more inviting!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My room is a Special Education classroom, with students varying in grade level from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. This classroom model allows for my older students to take on more of a mentor and role model role for my younger students--it's VERY cool to watch!

The age difference in my room also creates a challenge, as all of our instruction is done in small groups (by grade level), and therefore requires many independent activities to be prepped and planned ahead of time!

My Project

The students in my VE class benefit well from flexible seating. We have adapted a table in our classroom to be closer to the floor, and students are IN LOVE--we have really seen an improvement in self-control in our classroom! I would like to provide them with more flexible seating options!

The large pillows will give students the option to lay on their bellies and backs while reading or writing, and the stools will be used at small group tables.We already have 5 stools--which students love-- but these stools are only located at one small group table, so not all students get to use them!
