Ms. Cohen from Pottstown PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wiggling and Moving While Learning!

My students need these stools to help them keep their bodies moving and minds learning! Students do best when they are comfortable and sitting safe while completing their work.

My Students

I get the pleasure of teaching a wonderful group of second graders who absolutely love learning!

My students are active learners.

They are always moving, wondering, making hypotheses, asking questions, and wanting to research their answers. My second grade class is made up of 20 students who come to school eager to learn and grow. Our Kindergarten through 6th grade school is part of a community made of caring and active students, and supportive staff. While almost 25% of our students come from low-income families, our staff works hard to give each of our students exactly what they need to feel successful and safe everyday.

My Project

Hokki Stools will help some of my learners focus their active muscles on moving in an appropriate way while increasing their concentration towards their academics! Students will use these stools at our kidney table during guided reading, in math groups, and during independent learning times.

These donations will help our classroom by creating an environment where students can work in a space where they can keep their active muscles moving instead of sitting still in their seats.

Research has shown that flexible seating is beneficial to all types of learners, and allows them to concentrate and work in a comfortable space.
