Ms. Leong from Church Rock NM is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe and Stimulating Spaces

My students need whiteboards and dry-erase pockets, alternative seating options, fidgets, and an essential oil diffuser.

My Students

My second graders are excited to learn something new every day! I recently became their new teacher, and we are quickly becoming a supportive community of learners.

The majority of our class is Native American and half the students are English language learners.

All students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. I seek to make school a safe and welcoming second home for students, to help students develop into lifelong learners, and to encourage them to become positive role models and leaders.

My Project

The materials we are requesting will create a safe and stimulating classroom environment for students. The fidgets, Kickbands for chairs, and wobble cushions will allow students to move and release energy while remaining seated and engaged in learning. The essential oil diffuser and oils will help calm and focus students.

Students will love practicing spelling and math on the whiteboards and using the dry-erase pockets for small groups and center work.

The seat cushions and foldable chairs will give students comfy spots around the room to read. Thank you for helping make school a sanctuary where students want to be!
