Catch A Wave with Portable Desks!

Help me give my students portable desks for use during flexible seating opportunities. They need these tools to improve focus while choosing the optimal independent learning setting.

My Students

I loved school when I was a student. It is my goal that my students love school just as much as I did. It's one of the reasons why I chose teaching. I try to provide a clean, safe and inviting room environment for my students. I also take pride in creating challenging and memorable lessons.

My students come to school each day with a desire to learn, despite the challenges they face in their home lives.

The majority of my students are English Language Learners. My school is a 100% free lunch school, located in the inner city outside of Los Angeles, California. We work hard to create a community of scholars who will leave us ready to tackle the world on their journey to successful entry college and beyond.

My Project

My students need these materials because they need support during their flexible seating opportunities. We utilize a blended learning model in our classroom and during blended learning students are working cooperatively with their peers or independently in various places around the classroom. This also gives me the perfect chance to utilize flexible seating and give students choice and creativity for choosing their workspace. I choose the portable desks because students can move these to any part of the classroom and work on their technology assignments.

I have read that research shows that when students have choice and buy in that the information they retain increases.

We are a community of learners and these resources will come in handy.
