Mrs. Stemm from Pickerington OH is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Reading Nook

My students need flexible seating for their reading corner. We do many read-aloud activities and a place for them to sit comfortably would help the learning process tremendously! They also need a practice book for social studies.

My Students

The population served in my classroom spans from EL to gifted. Because there is such a difference in abilities within one group of students and some students are new to the country, my students are actively engaged in activities that revolve around social development along with challenging content.

My students are always looking for a challenge in the classroom.

Eager to learn, we focus on the growth mindset as we progress through our lessons. With each activity, students are reminded to stay positive and challenge themself to think outside the box.

My Project

The carpet and bouncing seats will help to provide my students with a great learning environment where they can be comfortable.

The best way to get a child to learn is to help them to feel like they are in a safe place.

These resources will allow for my students to feel they are getting what they need from their environment in order to learn successfully.

The book is a reference for me so I am able to challenge students in the area of social studies. This resource will allow me to provide students with supplemental material in order to make a concept entirely understood.
