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

Fun Learning in First Grade

Help me give my students some flexibility with their seating and some help with their oral reading, word pronunciation, and reading expression.

My Students

My students live in a low income area. They are hardworking and eager learners. Some of them are English language learners and some of them fall under the special ed umbrella. Some of them attended kindergarten and some have not. Their reading abilities range from reading on grade level and above to still learning letter sounds. They tend to work best in a non-traditional environment, with a variety of seating options not just desks and chairs. They are always excited to be in school and we have fun learning all the time. They learn from me and I learn from them. Each one owns my heart.

My Project

The wobble seating really helps my students who have trouble concentrating because of their need to move around. This seating allows them to move without being a distraction for the rest of the class, and helps significantly improve their ability to focus on their work.

I have a lot of students who are low readers and very shy about reading out loud.

The whisper phones will really boost their self confidence and help them become better readers. This is also a great help with my English language learners, as they can clearly hear their pronunciation.
