Ms. Zender from Ham Lake MN is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wanted: Flexible Seating

My students need to have areas they can sit comfortably to help them focus on their learning. Wobble stools will allow them to sit and wiggle while learning!

My Students

My amazing group of second and third graders come to school each day with smiles on their faces and the energy and desire to soak up as much knowledge as they can. Making connections with this group of students has been easy because they come with stories they are willing to share, they aren't afraid to make mistakes, and they are excited to learn.

There are 26 second and third graders in my classroom at our charter school who are creative, curious, eager to learn and full of life.

Our school offers classes Kindergarten through 8th grade with rigorous academics, an amazing staff, and a safe environment for the whole child. The four pillars of our school are to focus on arts and science, academic excellence, differentiated learning, and character development. We have been awarded a Reward School 5 years in a row. In 2015 we were named a Blue Ribbon School.

My Project

My students are excited about taking on the adventure of turning our classroom into one with flexible seating. We currently have an old couch in our room and it is a hot commodity with all of them. They have been finding their own ideas about what they would like to have in our classroom. They want to make it their own. They want to add wobble stools, scoop chairs, step stools, and other pillows and cushions to the class.

When students have a comfortable spot to sit and learn, they are more excited about coming to school and are more focused on their work.

The materials will allow them to have the chance to pick an area where they would work best and be most comfortable.
