Mrs. Torbert from Stillwater OK is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Grab a Stool- It's Time for School!

My students need these stools to have adequate seating around our horseshoe table. We use this table for small groups, art, etc. Using stools instead of bulky chairs will allow for more kids and more fun!

My Students

Hello! It's another great year at our school with lots of fun and learning! I have a wonderful class of 23 fifth graders. They are smart, funny and ready to expand their minds. I want them to feel at home in our classroom. Our school is a great place to be and we build community everyday so that we create not a class, but a family.

Every classroom is unique.

Sometimes we need to mix things up and offer something new and cool to grab a kid's attention. It may be hard to believe, but some kids don't love the routine of school. They find it challenging and sometimes it takes lots of hard work to reach their goals. I hope that my project puts a little fun and "free choice" into their day :).

My Project

The students will love sitting around the table on these fun, green stools!! This will allow us to have more kids fit easily at the table for reteaching in small groups, math and literacy stations, small group work or an art project. The horseshoe table seems to draw kids to it for more space. Adding these stools will add a little more fun and flexibility to our day!

Not only that, but these stools can be moved around our classroom to allow for flexible seating.

I want to offer different seating options for my students so that everyone can learn, and be seated, in the best place for them.
