Ms. Maggio from Enfield CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe Seating

Help me give my students a comfortable seating option. These cushions will allow them to sit on the floor for independent reading or enjoy a snack or lesson outside!

My Students

My classroom beams with the smiles of 8-9-year-old students who are working to find some normalcy after Covid-19. As my new group started 4th grade, they began working to close the gap that Distance Learning unavoidably presented and they begin their new journey together. Each day they are at school, they express how excited they are to be back and see familiar faces!

My Project

One of the best places to do our school learning is outside! With Covid restrictions, classrooms just don't look the same. These seat cushions will give students a place to sit outside and read a good book , listen to a lesson, or enjoy their snack or lunch! We also look forward to stepping outside for a mask break. When the weather gets cooler, we can use the cushions to stretch out next to our desks for a little change from our rows of desks! I know these cushions will be put to great use!
