Mrs. Bush from Austin TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books + Fun Seating = Learning for All

My students need more flexible seating options, like the bean bag chair and the items to create a reading nook, and books to create more literacy units.

My Students

I teach a wide range of students, from gifted students to students that receive special education services, in my language arts classes. My students are amazing young men and women that come from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Many have special needs, including ADD, autism, anxiety, and sensory issues. My children love to learn and enjoy collaborating on projects and working with their peers. My goal is to provide a warm, loving, comfortable environment that promotes risk taking, exploration, and collaboration. They deserve the best classroom environment to learn in.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. My students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting on a rug with clip boards, standing at tall desks, and working at a coffee table. Some of my current choices need replacing, like my rug and 2 of me special chairs.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.

I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They re more engaged and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

In addition, I'd like to implement new literature circles for my students.
