Ms. Boykin from Midland GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students flexible seating options, (the kids love the idea of cyphering as a way of collective thinking) and headphones for blended learning opportunities!
I want to create a special inviting environment for the students I have. The students are eager and ready to learn. They love learning through interactive activities and self discovery and I would like to create an inviting room that would allow me to do so.
This year I will be teaching reading and science and to merge the two I would like for the students to be exposed to a classroom environment that keeps their minds interacting.
Motivation, engagement, and building professional and personal relationships is the key to success in my classroom!
Our school is not 100% free and reduced lunch, 50% of our population are from low-income homes, including single parent homes. Being able to come to school and not focus on the things that are missing from their lives is a gateway to opening doors of explored learning. I am elated that we are starting such an empowering way to learn the curriculum.
Last year, my district allowed me to be a part of a professional learning community at Harvard University. I learned about giving my students a voice, thinking and thought processes and innovative ideas that shift education to becoming a shared responsibility between teacher, parents, and students as a learning community. From one of the professors there, I learned how to to have class discussion through "cyphering." Just like a dance cypher, the students are allowed to "chime" in when they feel the need to contribute. This far, it has been a HIT in my classroom and the students absolutely LOVE IT! We are fighting for space (literally Ive had tears over a bing bag), and my couches are old and warn out! Please help me create other means of flexible seating and keep giving my cypher rap session LIFE!!
