Mrs. VanHove from Iowa Falls IA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Smart Seats for Smart Thinkers

Help me give my students seating that works for them! Students have thrived in my classroom because they are able to pick a spot that works for them and helps them concentrate!

My Students

My students come from a rural community, with a school system that consists of 2 elementary schools, middle school, and high school. It is a large school district that is culturally diverse. My students come from all sorts of different backgrounds, each having their own unique educational experiences before entering my 2nd-grade classroom.

My students are active at their age and get excited to come to school.

We are often moving throughout the classroom, interacting and engaging with peers, group work, partner work, etc. They practice their reading and math skills and deepen their interest and knowledge in science, social studies, and digital citizenship. My students are always eager to learn new things and try new things in order to grow as a 2nd-grade student!

My Project

Smart spots are something I have put into action this year, and the students have been thriving! Now, I'm ready to build my flexible seating classroom even more for my incoming students!

Help give my students smart seats, to help them become even smarter thinkers!

Smart seats and smart spots have been crucial in my classroom this year, and I want to be sure I can give my students the same opportunity next year by building my classroom with even more alternate seating options.

When students have a choice, they thrive...not only in classroom work but in choice of classroom seat as well. Help increase their seating choices to build their academic skills and stay engaged in learning!
