Mrs. Roth from Mc Kean PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Young Minds

My students need the invention kit, building brick kit, and code file folder game to enhance their morning work STEM bins to foster creativity. The wobble chair would be beneficial for students who struggle with sitting.

My Students

Being students at a Title I school often means that these students are faced with more hardships than students at other schools. Yes. This may be a label given to our school due to household income. This does not define our students.

These students are just like every other student.

They have drive, determination, and excitement to learn. They want to have the same level of success as other students. They have the ability to overcome this obstacle if they are given the opportunity. That opportunity can come from donations to provide the materials necessary to teach these students to read.

My Project

How do I continue to engage my students? One of the answers is to help the students in my room who struggle to stay seated. These students want to learn, but sometimes lack the capability. I would love to provide the help by allowing them to be successful in staying seated to their best ability. The seats wobble for those students, but create a stable chair for them to safely sit.

All the students want to learn, but need to be continuously engaged.

Another way that I can engage the students is by offering a variety of materials for the students to be creative with. The students will use the building brick kit, coding kit, and STEM materials to help foster creativity and passion for the subjects of science, technology, engineering, and math. To help engage students even more, I try to offer a variety of activities. This will only help students be engaged even more!
