Mrs. Asjes from Kansas City MO is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take a Seat. Any Seat.

My students need flexible seating options, like comfy pillows and carpet mats, to provide a more supportive learning environment. This would allow for student choice, comfortability, collaboration, and a stronger commitment to learning.

My Students

The students I serve attend a 1-6 grade school in an urban area of Kansas City. These children come from low-income families in high poverty stricken areas, but dedicate themselves to the learning and exploration of the world and its opportunities.

My students are determined, creative, unstoppable dreamers.

As a teacher for these children, I teach to inspire, encourage, and support them in every way. My goal is to help them love learning! They fail, they prevail, and they succeed.

My Project

"Can I move?" This question is asked every day by my students when they are working. We move to the front of the room, we move to our desks, and we move to the tables, but my students cannot move to various places in the room with comfortable seating found on the ground. These oversized pillows and carpet squares would allow for a student focused classroom, a classroom environment that supports student preferences, and an opportunity for better collaborative work spaces.

Flexible seating would make a lasting impact on my students and their learning.

If my students received these resources, they could use these pillows and mats to freely work around the classroom for assignments, collaborative projects, and to comfortably sit/focus for various tasks around our room. Our classroom would be more appealing to them as learners, provide them opportunities to work openly in spaces, and caters to their styles of learning.
