Mrs. Itani from Orlando FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Get Comfy!

My students need bean bags and stools for alternative seating options in the classroom to help them learn.

My Students

I teach in a Title I school where 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students come from diverse backgrounds and a high percentage of students are from low income families. Despite the daily challenges they face outside of school, students come to class each and every day eager to learn.

Providing an environment where students can learn and flourish is key to academic achievement.

My goal is to do that by providing everything they need to do so.

My Project

The materials for this project will allow students to sit at different areas of the room while learning. The bean bags will be used in a reading corner where students can pick out a book and sit in a comfy spot to read it. The stools will be utilized around the room and be used during small group time.

Having the option to sit at "a special spot" will motivate students to work harder.

Students will still be able to use their own chair when they want, but why would they want to with different seating options available. Students love having options, and this is one way I can provide that for them.
