Mrs. Frenkel from Lake Worth FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

It's So Quiet in Here! Shh!

Help me give my students tennis balls that will be placed on chair legs and desk legs so I can create a peaceful and quiet environment conducive to learning.

My Students

This will benefit our entire school-- from K to 8th grade. All of the students are excited and ambitious scholars in a Title I school. Each one of the scholars who walks through the doors is open to a journey of learning. The scholars at our school love to learn new skills that they see fit that will open their horizons to possibilities for their future. Curiosity and motivation are not there-- yet. I am hoping with resources, becoming a green school and to make our school grounds more beautiful. Benches for students to sit on while they wait for their parents to pick them up would be a huge help.

My Project

To minimize the negative impact that the moving of desks and chairs causes in easily distracted students learning, I will place tennis balls on chair legs and desk legs. This simple action will create a more productive learning environment. By donating to our project, you will help to improve student attention and focus, as well as helping them to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to simply focus on their academics and not be distracted by the annoying noise caused by the constant movement of school furniture.

These tennis balls are going to help reduce the amount of noise and distraction.
