Mrs. Jones from Smithville TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Shake Those Wiggles Out

My students need lap desks, building blocks, and stools to help make learning as fun and comfortable as possible. 3rd graders have a hard time sitting still. Having options for STEM activities and seating will help.

My Students

My students come in every day with a positive attitude and full of energy. I would love that energy to continue throughout the day with engaging activities and diverse seating. Smithville has a very diverse population. We are a Title 1 school with over 60% of students being economically disadvantaged. My students are eager to learn, and love being able to choose how they learn.

My students love to discover how they use math in the real world.

Being able to have projects for them to discover different aspects of math is somethings the kids love. Our school is a very small school with several students having little exposure outside the county. Nothing is better than watching kids discover new things while learning.

My Project

All students need the ability to move freely in a classroom, but thats not always easy to do. Flexible seating allows students to be as comfortable as possible while being at school. By providing my students with lap desks, bean bags, and exercise balls to name a few, you will help my students feel their best which in turn, gets them excited and more comfortable to open up to challenging activities.

Let's throw the paper and pencil away and get started making a project with our Makerspace!

Students learn best through hands-on activities. The Legos and Tinker Toys, along with other items I already have, will allow students to create a project associated with what we are learning. These activities not only keep kids engaged, but also expands their critical thinking. The cart will allow all objects to be in a center with students in control of their learning.
