Mrs. Palantzas from Brockton MA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students more flexible seating with motion stools and lap desks, as well as writing journals and cushions with a storage crate.
I love teaching in Brockton and giving back to a school system that has given me so much in my own life! This year I will be teaching 1st grade and I can’t wait to watch my students make their amazing transformations from September to June.
In order to keep these tiny busy bodies engaged in learning, I am hoping to bring in some new and fun flexible seating arrangements into my classroom.
First grade is such a unique grade where the students go from being “needy” kindergartners to becoming more independent second graders by the end of the school year. It is a year of exponential growth, but with that comes a lot of hard work! Having the opportunity to move around the classroom and to sit in some fun novelty seating will help keep my students engaged!
These materials will help me to better engage my students throughout the school day. The portable lap desks will make it easier to create a flexible tablet station to be used during math and readers' workshop. The “KinderMat” story time cushions will give my students an inviting place to sit down and dive into a good book during independent reading time. Having the motion stools at the teacher table will keep it fun and exciting and help get their wiggles out while learning! And the journals will promote their writing skills.
Please help me turn my visions into a reality!
Flexible seating has proven to create more engagement, which in turn promotes more learning! Every little bit helps! Thank you!
