Ms. Cobb from Grenada MS is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students items for flexible seating; giving them the best opportunity to do their best work in a comfortable manner.
My class is comprised of a wonderful group of forty-eight 7, 8, and 9 year boys and girls. I am blessed with 24 energetic young men, and 22 take charge, take care of everyone, young women that love to challenge each other, question everything, and make me work harder than I ever have in ten years of teaching. We are housed in a K-3 school that serves almost 1500 students.
We know no limits to what we can accomplish when we work together in a positive atmosphere!
Although we live in a town where the majority of the population live below the poverty line, you would never know it with the attitudes and determination of the children in my class. These 46 students love to use hands-on manipulatives to explore math concepts and skills, and they love even more to have the opportunity to peer teach a friend who may be struggling. My classroom is a 2nd/3rd grade looping class, and I teach math, science, social studies, and health. Centers are our main focus during the day, as they help reinforce skills that need mastery!
Sometimes in order for a child to be successful in the classroom sitting in a desk or at a table is a necessity. But then again, sometimes children need the flexibility of choosing to lie in the floor or sit in positions that are not always conducive to a desk or table setting. Even some adults have a hard time sitting in meetings in the hard, straight-back chairs for 4+ hours a day. Having these lap desks, clipboards, and cushioned pads will open doors for students to leave the traditional seating arrangements and get comfortable while they concentrate on their work.
