Ms. Valadez from Winchester CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Full Flexibility Through STEAM

My students need to balance balls, stack stools, an Ozobot Bit, and other materials to continue on their discovery with everything STEAM and to be comfortable in the classroom!

My Students

Our room is filled with wonderful students that are eager to learn! We are a room filled with different personalities and likes. However, one thing that is evident in our classroom is that we are a FAMILY of learners.

We are all "Trying to do better than good enough!" As a classroom, we have all vowed to do our best together!

We will learn together, we will make mistakes together, but most importantly, we will stand together to ensure every day we are learning!

My Project

The items selected for this project will continue to foster flexible seating in our classroom. With your donation, students will be able to learn in a classroom that allows them to freely select their seat while maintaining responsibility in their seat selection. Bean bags will allow students to move from chairs to comfortable seats. Stools will allow students to move throughout the classroom with minimal distraction. Students will also continue their journey with basic STEAM supplies (plates, cups) that will support their learning in the 21st century classroom. Cricut supplies will be used as students explore the world of design and production using our classroom Cricut.

Help us continue our journey through STEAM and flexible seating!
