Teacher MacDonald from Portsmouth NH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hot Seats

My students need stools to provide more flexible seating and increase engagement.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are engaged in learning French and really put forth a great effort to fully understand, speak, and learn about the language and culture. Many of our students go on to take the French AP exam in High School, and continue their study of French in college.

We have a lot of students with special needs, including, IEPs, 504's, children with autism, and anxiety.

I am looking to make my classroom more flexible so students are not sitting at traditional desks. Flexible seating will allow more space to move and learn, making learning more fun for everyone.

My Project

My class needs the metal stools because my classroom is lively. I do not teach in a traditional manner where students are glued to their desks. We like to move, play games, have stations and collaborate together on different projects and dialogues. These seats will make it easier to move about and fulfill our objectives of a differentiated community environment.

Research shows flexible seating increases attention and focus for extended periods of time, which is crucial during an 80 minute block schedule.

These stools will provide an optional seating that varies from traditional classroom seating, and students love choices in the classroom.
