Mrs. Rosenberg from Stratford CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Classroom Rug = A Creative and Comfortable Learning Area

My students need a large inviting carpet to gather together or go to to engage in reading activities as well as have a comfortable spot to collaborate on their group work or enjoy a book independently.

My Students

"We pledge to do our best. In reading, math, and all the rest!" Those are the words that my students recite and try their personal best every day to follow. Our school serves students in grades K-6 in a low-income area of town. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences and opportunities to explore the world around them. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential to soar to new heights in their academic and social emotional development!

My Project

The students will use the carpet every day, multiple times a day. I will bring my students down to the carpet where they will learn reading, math, social studies, and science. My students are more engaged if they have a comfortable area to share ideas together or enjoy a spot to just sit and read. Students are more likely to sit in places other then their desks as it gives them choice and flexibility. The carpet provides a comfortable meeting area for all types of learning. This allows me to implement unassigned flexible seating. The carpet will help to ensure that students are working and are fully engaged at all times. I would like to hand over the responsibility of seating choices to my students. I've noticed that it helps my students become more self-aware of what types of seating and environment help them learn best. And they're empowered by the opportunity to have choices.
