Ms. Short from Kansas City MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Organized With Reading

My students need supplies to help them organize their books and a timer clock to help track their reading stamina. They also need wobble chairs as they work around the classroom.

My Students

Every day I am greeted by 22 enthusiastic learners! If you were to peek in my classroom you would see a variety of races, religions, genders, and background experiences. However, one thing remains the same. They have this unique passion for learning and they brighten up any room with their smile as they eagerly work together to accomplish a goal.

These creative students are each special in their own way.

Which means they also learn in their own ways, which includes where they learn in the classroom. I want my students to feel comfortable in our classroom as we move around to work. I recognize that some students struggle to sit at a desk the whole day, and I want to provide them with comfortable seating to move around as they work. I want to continue to support my students and ignite their passion for learning. I hope you will consider helping us in this process!

My Project

My students are each unique students that I am lucky to work with each day. These students are continually working to improve their reading skills. These materials will help us to be more organized in our classroom as we work on reading.

We will use the materials as we continue to grow as learners and leaders in the classroom.

We will use the containers to help organize our books for the current topic we are working on. The timer will be used to help track our reading stamina and set goals as a class. We will use the wobble seats to find comfortable spots around the classroom to work.
