Mrs. Quick-Hooker from Chapel Hill NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need Flexible Thinkers. They Need Flexible Seating!

My students need lap desks, floor cushions, and wobble chairs, so they can be successful in the classroom!

My Students

We teach students to be flexible thinkers. Why not give them flexible seating? Have you ever changed your seat because it didn't fit your learning style? My students would like to have some freedom in the choice of seating.

We always have a great time.

They are always asking questions and coming up with creative solutions to problems. They seek knowledge and opportunities to learn. They find pure joy in learning. They should have a choice in how they learn best!

My Project

These materials will make such a huge impact on my students because now they will have a choice in where they learn best. Having kids sit in a traditional classroom setting is not ideal for our 21st-century learners. They need more flexible seating because not all students learn in the same way. These stools, floor cushions, and lap desks will not only give them options, but challenge them to learn how to make a wise choice. It's more than sitting in a seat because it is cool realizing what you need to be successful. These are the decision makers that will one day lead society. Let's give them options and watch them be successful.
