Comfort in Learning

My students need the opportunity to move around and sit in comfortable seating arrangements in order to maximize their learning. A new table will allow more of my students to sit in groups!

My Students

My school encompasses K-4th grade students. We qualify as a Title I school. My students love to learn and explore new material in every possible way. They are often lacking in materials and resources that are needed to achieve the success they are capable of because of financial strain at home. Many of my students see school as their safest place to get food, love, and learning. My students have varying needs, including hearing loss.

Although they may experience struggles at home, they are no different than other students in their desire to learn, have fun, and be the best they can possibly be!

My students are from a variety of backgrounds including high poverty homes, foster homes, single parent homes, and some are being raised by grandparents or other family members.

My Project

My students would benefit from an additional table and flexible seating for our classroom. We currently have two tables and many very old and wobbly desks. I am rotating the students who sit at the tables. They all want to be at a table so they can communicate and collaborate with their classmates.

By providing a table and additional fun seating, my students will be able to work together in a comfortable and motivating environment.

Spreading their learning out on a table is much more effective than trying to contain the materials to a single desk. In addition to the table, being on a wobbly stool or comfy cushion makes learning a lot of fun!

Thank you for donating to my fabulous students' learning opportunity! I can't wait to see these materials in our classroom where they will be used daily!
