Mrs. Villanueva from Lufkin TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Why Flexible Seating? Increased Motivation and Engagement!

My students need Bouncy Bands, flexible seating and fidget pencils to remove all distractions as they read their favorite books and novels.

My Students

I teach a diverse group of 6th grade students who are excited and nervous about beginning middle school. I love that I have the opportunity to be their teacher as they begin their journey.

Making my classroom safe and comfortable is a priority.

My students are creative and love to share their personal stories in a place where they feel at home and secure, and this allows them to be successful in their learning. They inspire me to want to do more for them.

My Project

My students need flexible seating, fidget bands, finger fidgets and colors to be motivated and engaged in the many lessons we will be doing in our classroom. The benefits my students will receive from these supplies will be higher academic performance, improved behavior and increase metabolism which will help in their overall health.

Increased motivation and engagement is at the top of the list!

For some of my students, flexible seating will help them focus better knowing that there are a variety of seating options. The bouncy bands for the chairs and the finger fidgets will benefit my students who have a difficult time focusing due to anxiety and other issues. We do many in classroom projects throughout the year and the color markers will benefit all of my students.

Your support would make all of this possible and I truly appreciate you and I know my students will also be very grateful.
