Ms. Pettit from Momence IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

7th Grade Wonders

My students need art supplies for projects that we do in class to enhance understanding and comprehension of texts and show what they know. They also need more options for flexible seating.

My Students

The students in my junior high school are very diverse. 51% of the student population is classified in the poverty area. Many of the students are here because their parents work in the factories in town. However, many of the families are supporting multiple children, often not their own. Some of my students live with grandparents, aunts and uncles, or are from single parent families.

These students come from very different backgrounds and have a range of learning styles.

Many of the students are diagnosed with ADD and ADHD and have a hard time sitting in one spot for long periods of time.

My Project

English Language Arts is not all about writing essays to demonstrate understanding. Students display knowledge using individual strengths: art, music, or writing. To use these multiple intelligences effectively, my classroom thrives on projects and interactive notebooks to demonstrate understanding.

To complete projects and notebooks, art supplies are needed, which many of my student's families are not able to provide them.

The purchase of art glue, scissors, and colored pencils will help them to know they have the materials they need to show what they know.

Alternative seating is also involved in this project. Alternative seating aides student learning because, as studies show, they are more apt to participate in reading and lessons if they are comfortable.
