Mrs. Palmer from Manchester NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Comfortably!

My students need a lap desk and floor chair to have a comfortable place to work on the floor.

My Students

I teach twenty-one enthusiastic third graders who all love to learn. In our classroom, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner. We take learning into our own hands and are excited when we are able to work with new resources.

The heart and soul of my class is creativity and innovation.

Nothing excites them more than learning something new and applying it to their real life. As their teacher, I am proud of their efforts to always be the best version of themselves.

My Project

Classrooms are starting to look more like a Starbucks than a traditional classroom. Teachers are giving their students opportunities to learn in a way that is more comfortable for them by offering flexible seating options.

With this floor chair and lap desk, students would be able to sit comfortably on the floor while still being able to lean on a desk to write.

This will help all of my students, especially my students who have trouble keeping still. Working on the floor will no longer compromise the quality of their work! They can choose to sit comfortably on the floor while still being able to do their best work!
