Learning Comfortably

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn in a comfortable "flexible" classroom.

My Students

My students are hard working, kind, and compassionate kids. They respect one another, come to school eager to learn, and truly have a passion for learning.

When they are given the opportunity to get out of their desk and chair to work around the room, they love it.

I have collected pillows and beanbag chairs over the years. Unfortunately, there are not enough to go around. I would love to have enough "flexible seating" options for the whole class. My students and I would greatly appreciate your support.

My Project

Throughout the years, I have collected as many flexible seating options as possible. Students love the opportunity to leave their desk and chair during the day. Although students love sitting around the room to work, I do not have enough options for every student. I would love to be able to provide them ALL with flexible seating such as the saucer chair, rug and portable whiteboard.

The most successful classrooms have a comfortable learning environment.

I want my students to look forward to coming to school. I want to meet the needs of every student. I have noticed student learning increase when provided with the option of sitting around the room.
