Mrs. Powell from Waterford MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Second Grade Superstars

Help me give my students flexible seating options to help my diverse learners. Letting students have the ability to choose where they learn best, gives them a sense of empowerment and ownership.

My Students

I am a first-year teacher coming in with very limited classroom necessities. I do not know my students yet. However, I am sure they are an amazing bunch of kiddos.

I would love to be able to fill my classroom with everything a child needs to be a successful second-grader.

Second graders are eager to learn and also grow so much throughout the year. I just want to be able to give them the world. This will be a great year!

My Project

I am a new teacher coming into a blank space. My students deserve more than I can financially supply them right now. Each item I have chosen I have used in the past with children in other classrooms. I have seen the impact on students having the correct tools in a classroom, and it is significant. I want to provide that for my second graders!

`Getting students to love learning is so important.

The flexible seating and the math and literacy tools will help students be engaged while being able to make choices that fit their learning best. Help me do that by donating!
