My students need 1 set of 2 foam reading chairs, 4 padded floor pillows, 2 reclining floor chairs, and 4 balance balls as an alternative to traditional desk chairs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
From the moment they set foot in my classroom, my third grade students are active members in their classroom community. Together we have created a safe environment where each student can share their unique set of experiences and talents.
I love that my 8 year old students have created a "well-oiled machine" where they respectfully hold one another accountable for maintaining a rigorous learning community.
I am so grateful to teach in this supportive South Austin community. Our school faculty and administrators do a fantastic job of staying student-centered, which really shines through the kids. We have so much fun everyday and learn so much from each other.
Creating a student-centered environment involves providing a classroom space where students feel comfortable to explore and engage in their own style of learning.
With your generous donation, my goal is to create a flexible learning space to provide students a choice of where they would like to settle in and get down to learning, much like you see at a coffee shop!
There will be a lowered work table area with floor seats, offering an option to traditional desk chairs. In the library there will be an invitingly cozy space with foam-filled reading chairs and floor pillows so students can get "lost in a book". Another seating option made available will be round balance balls for students who may be struggling to sit still during whole or small group instruction.
