Ms. Miller from Kearny NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Is Fun & Flexible!

My students need comfortable spots to sit while doing their work. Bean bags and other relaxing spaces to sit would help my students focus and learn.

My Students

I teach at a charter school in an urban neighborhood in New Jersey. My students come from the surrounding towns and are excited to learn new things. I want to make my classroom as comfortable and welcoming as possible for them.

My second grade classroom is a room full of energy and discovery!

The families in my class donate as much as they can to my classroom, and it is appreciated more than they know. I love going out to shop for new and exciting items to bring into my classroom, but I find myself constantly spending my own money! I want to make my classroom the best I possibly can for my students!

My Project

Over the past two years, I have seen what a difference flexible seating makes with some students. Having the chance to move around during the day and sit in a comfy spot makes all the difference!

Who wants to be stuck at a desk all day?

My students love moving around and having the opportunity to lay on pillows or sit on couches to complete their work.

Some of the resources that I have chosen, like the couches, rocker chairs, and bean bags will greatly impact my students' learning this year! They will be even more excited to learn new things!
