Mrs. Klanica from Youngstown OH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe Seats Can't Be Beat!

My students need uniform chairs within our classroom to safely sit and learn in a comfortable position.

My Students

Our Inclusion setting consists of 8 students with various special needs and 8 typically-developing students. I co-teach with an Intervention Specialist, and there is an Educational Aide present in the classroom. We work together to meet the specific needs of each individual student. Through differentiated activities, we provide the students with many opportunities to demonstrate their learning and ability levels.

Our classroom is made up of a diverse group of 5-6 year-olds, mostly from low-socioeconomic households.

Our school is comprised of families from a rich variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Our students are energetic and eager to learn every day. Many of them can't wait to come to school each day to participate in the many fun learning activities we develop for them in our warm and welcoming classroom.

My Project

Currently, my classroom chairs are not all the same and not in safe condition. Many of the chairs have uneven legs (causing them to wobble uncomfortably), chipped pieces of wood (scratching the students' legs) and loose or missing parts. My students use seating in several areas of the classroom throughout the day. In addition to sitting at their assigned tables for written work, my students rotate through work stations/centers where comfortably sitting is necessary.

My students need new chairs to be seated more comfortably while listening and working throughout the day.

Having a safe and comfortable learning environment is key to allowing all students perform to the best of their abilities. Both my students and I would be so excited to walk into a more uniform-looking classroom where we can comfortably work and learn together.
