Mrs. Downing from Seekonk MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

HMS Yellow Team Science - The Best Year Ever!

My students need flexible seating options such as bean bag chairs and soft seats for a comfortable learning environment, as well as supplies for activities and a classroom printer.

My Students

Our HMS student community is composed of outstanding children who have a strong desire to learn about the world around them. They are motivated to work with others to solve problems and design solutions. Science class is an opportunity for them to explore the natural world, while also developing critical cooperation skills with their peers.

My goal is to provide flexible seating options and differentiated teaching supplies to accommodate the variety of learning styles and needs that my students have.

With various options for seating and learning, and a wide variety of activity supplies available, our students will feel safe and comfortable in their classroom and will be able to stay focused.

My Project

The resources listed in this project serve so many purposes, I do not know where to begin! In science class, we are always working on interesting activities! We go through many consumable items such as markers, chalk, paper products, batteries, and more! A classroom printer will offer us easy and quick access to making copies of exemplary work, giving students second chances when they need them, or making a quick copy of notes for a friend who was absent.

Above all, the MOST EXCITING items are the flexible seating options that can be offered to students to work in ways that best suite their individual needs!

Bean bag chairs, filling, clipboard, and soft seats will open up even more opportunities in our classroom for students to find a space that works best for their learning style.

I am so excited to start this school year with our new classroom and resources! We will surely make the very most of all of these supplies! Thank you so much!
