Ms. Gray from Brooklyn NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Read with Flexible Seating!

My students need flexible seating for guided reading, independent reading, and shared reading in class. Flexible seating allows my first graders to move around and feel comfortable while focused on reading.

My Students

My students are coming mostly from the Kindergarten Dual Language program, excited and ready to begin a second year of content learning in both English and Spanish. I met some of my students at the end of this school year, but have not worked with them yet and this school year will be my first experience with them! A few come from English speaking homes and many come from Spanish speaking homes.

Students will build on their knowledge of one language to learn another and work together to become bilingual and biliterate individuals ready to compete in today's globalized world!

I am excited to providing the best learning space for my dual-language learners!

My Project

Flexible seating is an asset in any elementary education classroom. It allows students to use their energy and kinesthetic learning styles while being fully focused on the classwork at hand.The Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats will be used in our reading areas while students have reading time. The Wobble Chairs will be used both in the reading area and at whole class desks for students who need to move around in and use their energy in class while working.

Flexible seating is very important for my first grade students to be able to use their energy in a positive way in class and feel comfortable as they read.

It will help students concentrate on the task at hand and become more focused readers. Please consider donating and making our dual language classroom inclusive of all learning styles!
