Mrs. Palermo from Clermont FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Home Sweet Classroom

My students need collaborative seating like pub tables with saddle seat stools, Flex-Space floor seats, Wobble Chair, and wobble cushions which reflects a comfortable, “family-style”, homelike atmosphere!

My Students

My students are bright, full of energy and humor, and eager to learn! They deserve a space where they can come and comfortably learn, as if they were at home. Most students (and adults) learn and grow best when they are in a comfortable environment...like their own home! I feel a few comfortable flexible seating options would give our classroom a feeling of a “home away from home” environment. I would like to provide my students with a comfortable, stress-free, safe environment where they can learn and teach their full potential!

My Project

I think we can all agree that most of us learn and perform best when we are in a comfortable, relaxing environment...like home! This is the exact classroom environment I would like to provide for my students. Everyone has different learning needs. Some students perform better standing to work, while others prefer sitting on the floor with a clipboard. It’s all about comfort! I feel a few comfortable flexible seating options would give our classroom a feeling of a “home away from home” environment. These tables will serve as standing tables where students may stand to complete their work, or just to have a seat that could resemble what they would use at home or in a coffee shop. The floor seats and cushions will provide a comfy option for kiddos who enjoy working on the floor. I would like to provide my students with a comfortable, stress-free, safe environment where they can learn and teach their full potential!
