Ms. Dusek from Bartlett IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Comfy and Cozy During Daily 5!

My students need flexible seating! I am doing Daily 5 (stations/centers) in my classroom, and these little chairs will help the students have a place to sit around the room that works best for their learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

What I love about my students is they are very adventurous, they love to discover new things on their own, and they love to request new ideas and express their unique thoughts for me to do in our classroom!

Some of my students don't come from much, but you would never be able to tell in my classroom because I make sure they feel like they have everything they need.

These students in my fourth-grade classroom are so excited to learn and grow in every subject, and it makes me that much more excited to go above and beyond to make their education be at its fullest as their teacher.

My Project

If this project gets funded, I will be receiving 15 flex-seat chairs for my classroom. The students will be able to grab one of these chairs to use to sit around the room during the school day. Some students cannot focus while sitting on a hard chair in a wooden desk. Therefore, I allow flexible seating in my classroom, but don't have any materials to utilize during that time!

These materials will make a difference to my students because they get to make their own choices and decisions on where they want to sit, work, and where they feel they will be most successful to learn.
