Mrs. Hoogland from Anchorage AK is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating, Eating, and Motivation in Second Grade

Help me give my students snacks, flexible seating, and the tools to learn what it means to be a member of a team. With these items, my students will be excited to learn and work together.

My Students

Our student body is one of the most diverse in all of Alaska. Coming from high poverty homes, our students experience constant stress and trauma. Providing a safe and engaging environment in my classroom is my number one goal.

The three things my students will tell you about my job each day in our classroom is "to keep you safe, keep you learning, and keep it fun!" Making a connection with my students can be challenging at times due to the high number of English Language Learners and the different cultural backgrounds.

This year, I hope to make tremendous gains in my students' learning, making progress in social and emotional awareness, and relationship building.

My Project

The materials I have requested are going to help my students be successful by adding comfort and flexibility to what our classroom offers. Using the lap desk trays, my students will be able to work away from their seats if necessary. The lap desk trays will also be ideal for partner work and switching up our routine. The pretzels, fruit snacks, and granola bars I requested will be used daily to ensure my students don’t need to worry about anything but learning when they are at school. I have included play doh, plush key chains, and light up favorites in my request to motivate my students to do their best and be rewarded for their hard work! I requested SEL books to help students build character, respect others, and work as a team. The stools I requested will be great for students who work better in a varied sitting position. Help make our classroom more wonderful!
