Mrs. Humphrey from League City TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Choice Seating and Flexible Groupings for Comfort in the Classroom!

My students need comfortable seating choices that include floor-level, chair height, and bar height arrangements. Adjustable tables are a must for this configuration.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. I teach AP, on-level, and English Language Learners in the 11th grade. Our district has established a daily lesson cycle of reader/writer workshop in ELA classrooms, so students read for at least the first 10 minutes of class and are writing on a daily basis.

In our current technological climate, it is such a joy to watch students rediscover reading for pleasure.

Sometimes I have to insist that they put their reading away so we can continue with applying those skills gleaned from the writers' craft in our writing. During a class period they read for fun, read for craft, discuss their discoveries, and use those to inform their own writing.

Our community suffered many losses from Hurricane Harvey this past year, and my students have had both negative and positive experiences during this period of recovery. It is important to me that my classroom be a welcoming and comfortable place for them to spend a part of their day.

My Project

Students today are offered a variety of choices to fit their variety of learning styles. However, the classroom environment does not always reflect choice. To make the classroom a place that fits the learning needs of students, I want to make choices in seating and grouping available to them. Learning can be enjoyable when one is offered choices.

We have choices of the type of seating in most restaurants, so to make the classroom more inviting, I want to offer students variety in seating choices, as well.

We read, collaborate, and write everyday, and traditional classroom furniture arrangements are not the most conducive for shifting the scene.
