My Students

I am excited to teach first grade this year. My goal for this project is to make my classroom a comfortable and exciting environment for young learners. Many of my students are English Language Learners and providing them with cozy seating options will increase their reading stamina!

I have a class of 27 active first graders who love to wiggle and move while they learn, so flexible seating is important.

We currently have traditional desks and chairs, but I would love for the students to utilize more of our classroom space and have a choice of where and how they would like to sit in our classroom. I want my room to be engaging and comfortable and allow for collaborative learning.

My Project

Your donations will help my students develop higher-order thinking skills since they will select where and how they would like to sit during learning or independent reading time. The balance ball seats and wobble cushions will allow students to move, wobble, and bounce, keeping their minds focused and alert. The comfy floor seats will make learning fun and cozy. The clipboards will allow my students to write and read easily in any fun seat they choose.

When students have choices, we also hear their voices!

This project for flexible seating will also help students collaborate with their peers. Each of the items on my wish list can be moved by little hands so students can easily pair up, work in a group, or have whole class discussions. These seating options will also strengthen our classroom community. Instead of spending all of their time in their desks, students will share these classroom seats, take turns, and discover more about their learning style.
