Mrs. Liebler-Kukuk from Dearborn MI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating and Collaborative Learning

My students need flexible seating and materials to do collaborative learning. I am constantly searching for things to make our learning environment comfortable and productive.

My Students

My students are from a very special area of the state Michigan. Our community is a strong and vibrant group of people that deserve the best education the world has to offer. My students are from Dearborn. Most live below the poverty line, but that does not stop their eagerness to learn. Our school has a strong team of educators that cannot wait to see what this school year will bring to our students.

To say my students are not like any others would be an understatement.

They are kind, caring and emphatic students. They are faced with many hardships each day, but it doesn't stop their drive to learn. I never have a day where I don't smile or laugh because of them. Whether it is in having a great discussion on poetry analysis or hearing them argue over who will give me their pack of goldfish crackers from lunch, we never have a dull moment.

My Project

My students need seating that is flexible yet comfortable. The materials I have chosen will also help keep collaborative fun interesting and successful.

For instance, the bean bag chairs are durable, yet they will also provide another form of seating.

I also would like a bistro style table for my students that like to stand. The organization materials will help me get materials to groups quickly, so they can start on their projects immediately.

Students need choices, but we need to make sure we choose products that are not distracting. I have carefully thought about each thing and think this will create a successful environment for my Esl learners.
