Ms. Morris from Etters PA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stand-ing Ovation for First Graders

Help me give my students 4 music stands. My students are loving these stands and using flexible seating arrangements this year! These music stands are sturdy and easy to use!

My Students

Our school is located in a rural area. My 21 students are a wonderful bunch! They are thoughtful, creative and active! They are a great group of students that need to move when learning. It’s hard for 6 year olds to sit for more than 15 minutes- that’s why these stands are so helpful!

All of my students are kind and supportive of each other.

But, my boys are “boys”! They’re a lively bunch.

Everyday we work on building a classroom community, understanding each other more and practice kindness! I believe these skills are just as important as the academics.

My Project

If the project is fully funded, I will be able to get 4 music stands to use as a part of a flexible seating option in my classroom. Currently, we are using and borrowing our music department's stands until February (when they need them back for good). It would be a very sad day for our students if they didn't have this option, come February!

Students will able to "stand" to control their bodies while learning!

This option gives their bodies a break from sitting all day. This option in flexible seating is their personal favorite! Students use the stands during independent time and love to adjust the stand to their height.
