Ms. Murray from Santa Fe Springs CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Second Grade Wiggles!

Help me give my students the option of flexible seating. They are active second graders who need to move around to better focus on their work. They love the ability to get their wiggles out while learning.

My Students

I work at a Title I school with a diverse group of second graders from low-income homes. They are energetic and creative! Each one of my students is incredibly unique and special in their own way. They love school and have a positive attitude towards learning every day.

We work on growth mindset in our class as our motto is "mistakes mean we are learning!" Every day we try to focus on improving and changing ourselves to become more positive people.

I believe my students have accomplished this goal as their smiles glow every morning through the end of the day.

My Project

There has been much research on how giving students the option for flexible seating has improved their focus and strengthened their academics. With my group of second graders, I have slowly given them options for some flexible seating and have seen only positives. They are excited to work, they are much more comfortable than the given chairs, and are able to move around without distractions.

Giving them the resources to succeed is my goal and I will continue to work every day to do so.

My group of students are also very strong readers and have been working through my classroom library. I want to give them more books that they love, such as the Magic Treehouse collection.
