Mrs. Fitzsimons from Danville CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

Help me give my students more options to sit around the room to learn!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My 5th grade class is filled with lively, creative, and very spontaneous students.

Their quick wit and abundance of questions shows their intense love of learning.

Their energy and enthusiasm are apparent in everything that they do. This drive and passion for learning is so important because our school promotes working hard to achieve learning goals, and is located in a community with high academic standards. My class pushes themselves everyday to do their best. Watching them excel and grow is so rewarding.

My Project

My classroom needs more options for my students to move around the classroom to learn. Yoga ball chairs are a favorite among them, and I’d love to add more to my classroom. I already have a few yoga ball chairs in my room, but my students love them, and we even have a daily schedule of what students get the option to use them. Having more chairs would make the number of students using them increase, increasing productivity, and happiness among m students.

My students will use these chairs at their desks, and around the classroom at different tables where students can work.

Having these extra chairs would really give more of my class the option of having flexible seating options.
