My Students

My classroom will be full of passion and eagerness to learn! As a first year teacher, I strive to inspire creative thinking and meet my students' learning needs and interests to support knowledge and growth. I don't want my lack of resources to limit my full teaching potential to reach my students! My project focuses on flexible seating.

I will have a classroom full of excited and ready to move fourth-graders.

By giving my students the option to sit where they learn best will allow free choice and the feeling of inclusion inside my room. I want my students to feel valued, respected, and comfortable when they are in my room.

My goal for this project is for students to feel excited about coming into my room each day. I want them to look forward to learning and having fun! Your donations will make my classroom vision possible!

My Project

As a first-year teacher I do not have the resources to start a flexible seating classroom, but with your help, my students will have a great start to a comfy year!

Research supports when students are comfortable they learn best.

With your support, my students will have a variety of flexible seating choices to encourage getting comfortable and serious about learning! From a cozy reading rug to balance balls, they will have several seating apparatuses to choose from. These seating choices will be included in a lottery system each month and also used in small group learning.

The floor desks will allow students to pair-up with a partner to learn in an exciting way. For the camping chairs, who wouldn't like to work in a comfy chair with a log footrest while learning about equivalent fractions?
