Mrs. Pineo from Leominster MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe and Comfy First Grade Chairs

Help me give my students age appropriate, comfortable chairs. The chairs we have now are very old, heavy and some are missing screws. These new chairs will allow students to sit comfortably enabling them to learn more effectively!

My Students

My classroom consists of many students with varying needs. I have an inclusion classroom with many children on IEPs, as well as children who are in programs for autism and behavior.

Our community also services many children from low-income families.

We are a school of grades kindergarten through fifth. We have five first grade classrooms. The children in my classroom absolutely love to learn and have become part of our classroom community. They love coming to school and enjoy being with each other everyday.

My Project

These chairs will benefit our classroom immensely. The students will be able to sit comfortably and safely while completing their learning opportunities. They will also be able to become more independent by taking care of their classroom materials. Unlike our chairs now, these new chairs can be moved easily by the children and stacked safely. A set of 24 chairs would bring equality to all students and ensure a safe and appropriate learning environment. The first grade learners deserve comfortable chairs to spend their long school days in. They would most definitely appreciate the new seats this year and years to come!
