Mrs. Sawyer from White Plains NY is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Learning & Flexible Seating

My students need to feel comfortable in their learning and their seating while transitioning into a new mini-lesson meeting area learning style used with our new curriculum! Flexible options = ownership of learning.

My Students

The students of my amazing 6th grade English Language Arts class are just that "amazing" in so many ways. These students have a thirst for knowledge and giving them the tools to quench this thirst is an essential part of our day.

Without this innate desire to learn tethered with continued enrichment and rigorous curriculum these students would not feel the success that they experience daily in our class.

Challenging them and inspiring them to question the world around them is one way that the youthful 6th grade students students of our class continue to stay engaged and encouraged.

My Project

For our new unit we are transition in curriculum as well. We will be using a new "mini-lesson" model that requires students to come to a meeting area and then branch off in their own space for independent practice. This is a new model for my entire 6th grade classes and felt that a change of seating and learning would be a great chance to incorporate some new independency that we have been striving for as newly minted middle schoolers! With the seating options this project would provide accommodate my tallest to smallest. The stools style seating is great for my taller students, the scoop seating is wonderful for my shorter students, and the rug is great for everyone in between. We will be switching around our classroom desks for some tall, standing desks as well. These options encourage students to have say in the setting that will work in. While their day is all about choices, the practice in the classroom regarding academic choices are some of the most profound. The students are going to be so excited for the new unit and their new options for seating, allowing for student independency and for all students to be even more successful English Language Arts students.
