Ms. Garcia from Hampton VA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bouncy Chairs and a Color Printer!

Help me give my students some bouncy chairs for wiggly middle school students. Being in seats all day is difficult for middle schoolers who no longer have a recess time, especially with such an active student population!

My Students

My students are a group academically & artistically talented individuals. I teach 6th-8th grade math with students of various backgrounds. A lot come from low-income families, and require extra support.

While my students are all very different, they are all creative, persistent, and capable in the classroom.

To help my students succeed, I am creating a classroom environment to fit their needs and personalize the content based on each individual’s level. My goal is to teach my students mathematics, but also skills they will need to be college and career ready. Through inquiry and collaboration, my students will begin to prepare themselves for 8th grade, high school, and beyond.

My Project

Having seating choices allows students to take ownership in their learning and decide what works best for them to be successful.

These specific seats allow students to move, which will increase their focus in math class and improve student success.

The balance ball seating will be available to my students who have a variety of needs and may just need something different than the norm to focus in class.

The color printer will help with our project-based learning so students will be able to create colorful presentations to display. I hope to have a color printer increase technology use in my classroom. I use color in my classroom for parent contact letters, visual aids, anchor charts, and assignments.

Color engages and inspires students, facilitates creative thinking, and helps develop critical thinking in a variety of subject areas.

Having a color printer will make providing color copies of assignments easier. The color printer will also allow me to print the students' work in color from their Chromebooks. Being able to display the color copies of their creations will inspire students and help them show their abilities to their parents.
