Mrs. Garrett from Savannah GA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Special Seating for Special Students

My students need special seating so that they can learn without distracting my other students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students live in an area that is high in poverty. They are having a hard time transitioning from elementary to middle school. Sixth graders are the freshmen of middle school and need help learning to be accountable.

I would like to provide my students with flexible seating so I can help my students in all their different learning styles.

Flexible seating will allow my students to be creative in the classroom and help those who have a hard time sitting for long periods of time.

My Project

My students are 6th graders who are learning how to manage changing classes for the first time. These students miss recess and really need to be able to move about.

By providing these students with special seating they can be sure their fidgeting needs are met without being a distraction.

The requested bouncy ball chairs are for those students who need to fidget and to get their needs met but also complete their assignments. The standing desks also have fidget pedals, so this allows me to assist my students who always want to walk around the room. They can stand and complete their work without distracting other students. I am serving their need to bounce around or stand up without distracting their peers who need to focus.

Sixth graders are full of energy and they need somewhere to put it. These seating options will greatly help my classroom environment and my students to be able to focus. Students need to be able to move around but there is a time in a place for it.
