Mrs. Turselli from Bronx NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seats for a Good Read!

My students need different types of chairs for flexible seating and risers to help our table go a little higher.

My Students

I am going back into the classroom as a first grade teacher, after being a reading teacher for three years. I currently work in a Title I school in the Bronx. While the majority of students come from low-income homes or from homes with limited parental involvement, they are enthusiastic and come to school every day ready to learn. Most if, if not all the students come to school ready to learn on a daily basis, regardless of their home lives.

My Project

Since I will be going back into the classroom, I want to switch my classroom from traditional to flexible seating and I hope I will never go back. The idea is to create a more comfortable environment that helps students be their best learning selves. I want to give more control of my room to my students.

They will choose what type of seats to sit on daily.

I want to give them a variety of high, medium and low seating, including stools, seating cushions, camp chairs, small rugs and stand-up tables. Students can move the furniture based on their needs; even laying on the floor is acceptable, and sitting by friends is allowed. If a student can’t abide by these rules, I simply move his or her comfy chair somewhere else, and students also move their own seating when there is an issue.
