Mrs. Richardson from Carpentersville IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. Richardson’s Flexible Seating Classroom

My students need flexible seating because traditional seating does not always work with first graders. New seating options will allow my first graders to learn in a more comfortable setting and make them more motivated.

My Students

My students are so special! We are a Title I school with low income students, but they strive to learn and succeed. My students come from a very low socioeconomic background, but they deserve the very best. They are hard working students and want to please you. They do their best every day and love coming to school. They deserve to be in a classroom they can feel comfortable in and learn the most. They should be allowed the freedom to choose how they learn best.

My Project

My students need flexible seating options because they will allow them the freedom to choose how they learn and give them a more comfortable setting. Students learn best when they are in a safe place and want to come to school. By donating to my project you will not only help to improve and increase attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

I am excited to see how my students academic achievement improves when receiving the wobble chairs, balance ball, and wobble cushions.

These students will be excited to have them at their desks and in their centers where they will be allowed more flexibility and comfort. My students typically are slow developers and have a lot of energy. They need more motivation to learn. These resources are a great way to improve the setting of my classroom and allow students the flexibility to control how best they learn.
