As a first-year teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district, I know I will not be able to supply absolutely everything my students desire. However, I hope DonorsChoose.org can help with funding a few things to make my first year of teaching a success for both the students and myself.
I want my students to remember our classroom as a warm and welcoming place where they discovered a love of learning.
I know that with your generous help, my students and I will have the tools we need to succeed. Children truly are our future and I am so eager to play a part. Know that your donation plays an important part in shaping an optimistic and promising tomorrow.
I am a teacher in a general education classroom and have students who struggle daily with attention, focus, and behavioral regulation. The flexible seating choices I have chosen including stools, stability discs, wobble chairs and lap desks, will allow students the flexibility they need to succeed and will teach them how to make good choices independently.
Many classrooms in our low-income, urban school have successfully implemented flexible seating and I am eager to see the positive impact these changes will make on my students.
I strive to use best practice and research-based strategies in my classroom and flexible seating is no different.
Research shows that flexible seating not only keeps students more active but allows them a positive outlet for their energy that keeps them engaged and motivated in their learning. Physical activity within the classroom, like the kind students will find when they are using the wobble stools and stability discs, has been found to increase academic performance and improve behavior as well as physical health.
