Mrs. Payne from Charles Town WV is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Garden Seating Project

My students need comfy seating options in our school garden for outdoor learning and reading time!

  • $1,794 goal

This project expired on December 6, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students love taking their learning outdoors. Engagement seems to soar when we go outside to do hands-on activities in our school garden. Our garden is a great way to build community among the students. It gives students the opportunity to work outside and learn about gardening, Science and healthy living.

My students also love to read in the garden during recess or extra time in the afternoon.

I want to create a cozy space for them to learn and enjoy!

My Project

My students would love to have outdoor furniture to add to their garden. The sectional sofa, orange stools, wicker chairs, and pillows will help to create a cozy outdoor environment for learning. Thank you in advice for your donations to this project.

Gardens have been shown to enhance confidence, help students develop a sense of accountability and promote a healthy lifestyle.

In our school garden, students learn their Science standards in a hands-on and fun manner. Gardening is an enjoyable activity to help children venture outside the classroom to witness the beauty of nature and cycle of living things. Thank you in advance for donating to my classroom and school project.
