Mrs. McCarthy from Mashpee MA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Support a Student Centered Classroom

Help me give my students a student-centered classroom that meets the needs of the individuals in it. A comfortable student is a calm, focused and productive student.

My Students

The learners in my class are impressive. I am so proud of how far they have come since beginning their journey in Kindergarten at our K-2 school. They take ownership of their learning and strive to become better at all they do. They're not afraid to make mistakes and challenge themselves.

My students are the kindest, sweetest group of kinesthetic kids that benefit from cozying up in a comfortable spot to support their growing reading and focus stamina.

They DESERVE an environment that is comfortable to them and conducive to their growth.

My Project

The students in my classroom will benefit from the options to choose between the floor cushions, floor chairs with comfortable backs and pillow chairs which this DonorsChoose project will provide.

Students feel empowered when given the ability to choose how and where they will learn in the classroom environment.

An uncomfortable student is a distracted student. This project will provide comfort for these incredible learners.

After introducing 5 large yoga balls as seating options in my class I have noticed a dramatic difference in attitude about arriving at school for some students. This project will provide further seating choices for kids. Students will choose where they feel most comfortable attending to their learning practice.
