Mrs. Avery from Hot Springs AR is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Learning

My students need more flexible seating options such as lap desks, bean bag chairs, and the option to carry their dry erase clipboard to their desired location.

My Students

My classroom will be filled with 22+ amazing students come August!

We are a Title I school.

My students come from different backgrounds and have various learning needs. My students need the option to be more relaxed while learning, and would benefit from flexible seating options. Lap desks, comfortable seating, and dry erase clipboards would be so useful in our classroom, they would help make learning fun and give students an option to work in a more relaxed environment. These materials would help enhance all subject areas.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

The lap desk allow the students to work around the room on their technology as well as paperwork efficiently. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to stretch out! The Big Joe Chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. It is lightweight and can easily be moved around the room or stationed near our classroom library. The clip boards allow the students to move around the room freely!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that these options will help us grow even more!
