Ms. O'Hara from Prospect CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit on It!

Help me give my students an opportunity for flexible seating during small group stations. There are ample opportunities throughout the school day where my students get to work in a small group setting.

My Students

My students are special. They are so eager to learn and share their ideas. They love reading about current events and taking leadership roles in their reading groups. My students are active and love the opportunity to have free range of movement when possible.

By providing my students with flexible seating for small group they will be able to practice self regulation in an structured setting.

My students are hard workers and always put forth their best efforts, and are most deserving of any enhancement to their learning.

My Project

We are requesting stacking stools for flexible seating. These materials will make a difference in my students' learning by allowing them flexibility throughout the day. Frequent movement breaks will allow them to be engaged longer, stay on task, and improve their academics!

Students spend way too much time at their desks and with stools it will allow them a little more free movement during small group activities throughout the day!

These stools will allow students practice strengthening their posture. I am so excited to give my students an opportunity to be engaged during small group activities. Thank you again in advance for your kindness and generosity! We are so lucky!
