Mrs. Fridell from Escondido CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Collaboration Fun!

My students need portable, flexible seating options in order to work in collaborative groups effectively. The easel will allow for small group instruction as well as collaborative group work.

My Students

Each and every student in my class is unique. They inspire me every day to be a better teacher. Poverty and trauma are the reality that many of my students face, yet they strive to succeed amongst all the hurdles.

My students are eager to learn, have a growth mindset, & constantly challenge themselves to make their thinking visible throughout the school day.

My students love hands on learning, technology, and other resources to help make learning fun & tangible. As a low income school, we lack many of the resources students would benefit from. With your help, we can make a difference for these students and their academic achievement.

My Project

My third grade students love collaborating with their peers. They are constantly moving around the classroom, engaging in authentic conversations to better understand the curriculum. Students learn best with choices, options, and the ability to move around. My students can use the portable seating choices to engage in collaborative work. If students feel relaxed, they will want to engage naturally. The seats will provide an opportunity for students to easily form and manage groups. In addition, they will help increase student focus, engagement, & productivity in the classroom. The easel will allow for the teacher to teach in small groups as well as provide a working space for students when they are in collaborative groups.

Students will be motivated by the flexible seating choices & the ability to be in control of their learning environment.

Please consider donating in helping my students collaborate at higher levels with flexible seating options.
