Mr. Spencer from Pinedale CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Mind Only Absorbs What The Seat Can Stand III

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Despite many of my students' low income/high poverty backgrounds, they love to read, write, and put their imaginations on display through a variety of activities and projects. They come to school eager to learn. This year, our class adopted Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass" as our classroom theme.

My students eagerly enter "Wonderland" each morning with renewed enthusiasm to see what new adventure in learning is awaiting them.

They love sitting in alternative seating. Currently though, we only have 3 options for seating that is different from the rest of student chairs.

My Project

My students love to work in groups and the two sets of 5 colorful stools (ten total) will accommodate them while they work in pairs, or collaboratively in groups of up to 6 or 8.

We all recognize that our mind only absorbs what our seat can stand.

With that in mind, these stools are comfortable and may easily be moved about, to accommodate various sized groups.

My students come from fifth grade classrooms with enough flexible seating options to accommodate every student in the classroom. While we don't have that many options, this project gets us moving in the right direction.
