Ms. McEvoy from Saint Louis MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students seats that they can use at the low rise tables (exercise donuts), chairs that allow them to sit anywhere in the room (flex-space comfy seats), clipboards, and fidget bands for wiggly students.
The students at my school come from low income households in an area of high poverty rates. This means that there are more challenges going on in their lives than many other children, their age. Every morning, as they walk in, I make sure that they feel safe, loved and valued in our classroom. I have many bright faces that smile, most of the day but there are others that just seem tired and not always focused.
As their teacher, I know that these students are so bright and want to be challenged academically.
They have so many questions and great ideas during class discussions. It is so apparent that their growing brains never stop! They will thrive in a classroom that fits their own learning styles.
Our classroom currently contains one table with four chairs, two low rise tables that allow students to sit on the floor, and eight desks. The students at desks do not always want to sit in a chair so the fidget bands would make them more desirable since I do not have the resources for more areas on the floor to work. When students are sitting on the floor, they sometimes like to lay down so the exercise donuts would encourage them to stay seated and allow them to bounce a bit.
Some students just work best spread out, not at a table or a desk.
The items I have chosen will give them more options. The flexible comfy seats will allow students to move around the classroom and find a spot that fits their needs with a clip board.
