Mrs. Savage from Worcester MA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Empowering Students with Flexible Seating

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore flexible seating. When students have the opportunity to choose in class they have a strong ownership of their community.We should provide students every opportunity to be successful!

My Students

My fourth grade students are kind-hearted and eager to learn. I love the way they enter school each day with a smile. I am amazed at their resilience in the face of challenges. All of my students thrive with a student-centered and focused classroom that is based on relationship building.

My students crave space within the classroom community to call their own.

Being able to problem solve and ask for the space that they need to succeed gives me a great sense of pride.

My Project

Students crave freedom and choice. Giving students choice throughout the school day empowers them to do their best! During independent or partner activities students are often looking for the best location for their learning success. With this project, I will have the resources necessary to offer a wider variety of options.

I want to set up an environment in which students can thrive.

I love seeing the finished product of a student who has asked for a quiet work zone. Or noticing how successful a group activity has gone with the perfect learning spot. With more options within reach, more students can find success throughout the school day.
