Mrs. Porter from Conway SC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Formative Student Seating

My students need active seating to help keep them focused in South Carolina History!

  • $473 goal

This project expired on December 1, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are comprised of some of the best thirteen year old personalities a teacher could ask for. The majority of these students love to move and are involved in at least two sports throughout the year. These students are almost like a big family inside of our own community where they will work with anyone without complaint. We do, however, have some students that are underprivileged and do not have access to Internet at home and many of our students have free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

As 8th graders they are very active. If they are feeling restless, they will be able to use these stools to help with their stored energy while still maintaining their focus in class. These stools will help my classroom of 8th grade students become even more student focused. Students will also be able to avoid distracting other students with these stools by having an outlet. My students will be able to get a choice based on their needs when choosing seating in the classroom. I believe that with your donation my students will increase their attention and will ultimate increase their achievement.
