Ms. Wieland/Cruz from Bronx NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learn and Create from a Different Space!

Help me give my students a fresh start to a new year with flexible seating. This way they can move around the room in a comfortable way. Wobble chairs are life changing and make a huge impact!

My Students

Our students are coming from low-income housing in a Title I school. They are entering second grade and have various disabilities. They are scholars who need some more literature on different levels and interests to help progress on their educational journey.

We lead our classroom by example, always persevering.

We constantly talk about core values in our classroom. The reality is, we can't do it alone!

The reality is that our students need new materials as they continue on their educational journey. They have made a tremendous amount of growth but the reality is, they need more space to move around the classroom with flexibility. We started off last year with some cushions and wobble chairs but it is time to make more areas of our classroom more flexible!

My Project

My second grade Integrate Co-teaching classroom has students who need more freedom to move. Some of the students have special needs and traditional desks and chairs are not for them. They need the flexibility to have alternate seating. The wobble chairs have proven to be a great success for me but I need a few more. The new product I'm excited to try enables my kids to sit in a comfortable position while also getting their work done.

I am so excited to start off the school year with different seating options.

How cool is it to come to school and sit on a wobble chair or even a comfy cushion while you read? Let's give these students that chance with a small donation!
