Mrs. Putnam from Afton WY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible, Fantastic, First Graders!

Help me give my students tables to create a flexible seating space. This will help my students to learn and grow in an environment that promotes group work, dialogue, and space to be creative in their thinking.

My Students

My students live in a very small town with a population of approximately 2,000 people. We are nestled in the Rocky Mountains and enjoy beautiful views and are surrounded by wildlife. We are hours away from big city life and enjoy life in a simple way.

My students love a challenge, setting goals, and learning how to work together to achieve them.

The students I work with are talented, hardworking, team players, and love learning. I work with a variety of students, including high needs, autistic students learning how to be in the general education setting and students who are gifted in regards to academics. I have students from many socio-economic backgrounds and coming from homes with different family situations.

This range of diverse students and personalities makes our learning environment a great place to grow from one another's experiences and the students all have different experiences they bring to our classroom. My students are incredible at whatever they set their minds to and surprise me everyday with how much they accomplish.

My Project

Students need the opportunity to have a say in their education, they may not know exactly what they need to know to be successful in life yet but they know what it feels like to be comfortable in learning.

I would love help in creating an inviting classroom that encourages student choice and collaborative thinking.

Meeting the needs of every child in my classroom is a goal and I would love to try to help them in every way possible including having the seating that makes them most capable of learning.

Having tables that encourage flexible seating and students working together in groups will help me in facilitating learning in a warm and welcoming environment where students will be able to engage with their peers and have the option to pick which table best suits their needs. Having this choice helps students become more engaged and have a voice in the classroom.

I hope to help students learn to make good choices and be able to engage in their learning in our classroom. Thank you!
