Mrs. Grant from San Jose CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Community of Learners

My students need balance ball chairs, a bar height table and barstools to collaborate with each other and stay on task.

My Students

We are a community of learners.

"I got it!"

"But what if we try it this way?"

"Do we need to include that?"

"What are you doing tomorrow?"

Conversations in a classroom are valuable to every student, no matter what the topic may be. Students learn from each other through social interaction, collaboration, and problem-solving. With 33 students in a classroom, these conversations can get quite loud and distracting to each other. But, the students are learning!

My classroom is typically loud. My students are all friends, and they all enjoy sharing thoughts and ideas with each other.

My Project

I have requested flexible seating such as a high top table and ball chairs so that my students can collaborate and be excited about their learning space. I am also requesting dry erase wall stickies to mount around the room so students will be able to use this tool to collaborate with each other. Timers and motion bubble timers will help create project-based learning and will help students stay on task.

Creating these kinds of work environments will allow my students to be engaged and stay focused in the classroom.

I am excited to hear the students reactions to when they choose a flexible seating option. I hear exclamations such as "Yes!" and "Oh! I can't wait to use this!"

My goals are to provide every student with a safe, fun and comfortable learning environment and to provide more room in our classroom.
