Mrs. Armstrong from Choctaw OK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flex Seating and Active Learning

My students need portable lap desks where they can comfortably utilize their Chromebooks in an alternative place, stability discs to use in a seat or the floor, and fidget bands.

My Students

My students are hardworking, motivated, future leaders who are also tappers, bouncers, and fidgeting scholars. They are students who need movement to learn and alternative places to sit to help focus and tap into their minds.

My students, regardless of ability, strive to be academically successful and are resilient to any challenge they may face.

My students come from diverse economic backgrounds and many have a difficult home life. School is a place to escape and overcome life challenges. I strive for my classroom to be that escape and a place to fall in love with the educational process and everything that an education has to offer.

My Project

Having the tools available to be comfortable in the classroom is the first step in creating a successful and inviting academic center for students. The portable lap desk will allow students ,who work better in areas of my room other than a traditional desk, the ability to sit in a comfortable spot with a surface to work on or to safely place a Chromebook. The stability cushion will allow students to stay in a desk or sit on the floor and create the natural movement needed to learn. In addition, the fidget bands will allow students who need to tap a way to do so without the noise.

The ability to move or fidget without distracting others helps create an all inclusive learning environment with academic success for all.

Children all have unique learning styles and having alternative places to sit or ways to release the fidgets, they are able to take ownership of their education and succeed while helping eliminate possible behavioral problems and/ or distractions that would stem from the inability to move. Education is the same as life, it is not one-size fits all.
