Mrs. Sharpless from Durham NC is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a learning space and community that gives them choices and allows them to move while they learn.
When you walk into our classroom you will find 22 smiling faces waiting to ask you a billion questions! They are some of the most curious students I have ever taught. They are constantly asking for more information and forming their own opinions. Their curious nature is contagious and I love investigating new topics with them!
Our community is built on believing in ourselves, being kind, working as a team and growing each day to be better than the day before.
I am so blessed to be a part of such a diverse community of learners that supports each other. We focus on encouraging each other to make mistakes and practice to get better (not perfect!). Through the encouragement of each other, the students have built a positive vibe that radiates throughout our room.
Students thrive in environments that offer them choice and ownership in their learning. My students will have the opportunity to choose their seating. Students will be able to choose from a Giaim Stay and Play Balance ball, a desk with a Bouncy Band, or a standard desk and chair. Providing students flexible seating shows them that they are individuals that all learn differently.
My ultimate goal is for our classroom to be a warm and welcoming community.
The desk lamps will help take some of the harshness away from the overhead fluorescent lighting. Students will share supplies in the mDesign Desk Organizer while utilizing flexible seating which will reinforce our sense of community.
