Mrs. Alexander from San Diego CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Cushy Comfy!

Help me give my students the gift of flexible seating. Productive learning starts with a comfortable place to sit! Third graders still love to sit on the floor! A cushion, pillow or back support makes it a treat!

My Students

I am lucky that I teach in an area and a school in which the students want to learn. In third grade they are just beginning to find out who they are. It is my goal to help them identifying their strengths and then show them ways to utilize those strengths.

Most students come into the third grade classroom excited about the subjects they'll learn and the "Big Kid" environment, some are even excited about homework!

My goal is to use students' natural enthusiasm to maximize learning and successes.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables and sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, they are more engaged, and they get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
