Ms. Nielsen from Beaumont CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

Help me give my students the option to focus and pay attention by allowing them flexible seating options. It has been proven that not all students learn well in a desk and chair.

My Students

My students are already working so hard and it is just the beginning of the year! They are very creative, respectful and just fill my days with happiness and joy!

As fifth graders they are the top of the school and should be the leaders on campus.

So far these students are showing me just what great role models they can be for all the younger students in the school. I am delighted to help guide them through this year.

My Project

Help my students by giving them different seating options! It has been proven time and time again that not all students learn by sitting in a desk and chair. Some students need to fidget, move, and feel comfortable in order to reach their full potential. That is why I chose to get cushions for comfort, fidget bands for fidgeting, and stools for different seating options in the classroom. By helping me start this room transformation I will be able to help my students learn in an environment that is catered to them and their needs. Thank you for helping them.
