Mrs. Linch from Cave Creek AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in Fifth

My students need flexible seating options, including large classroom tables where students can share space and work collaboratively. They also need lap desks they can use in the classroom and comfortable seating options.

My Students

I teach in a small academy style district elementary school. Our school's focus is Personalized Learning and PRIDE in our efforts. My students are fifth graders and they are between 10 and 11 years old. My students are enthusiastic learners who love to dialogue with each other, share ideas, and actively engage in their learning. They learn best when they work in groups.

My students are always excited to learn new things and participate in school activities.

This year my students have the opportunity to become the "big kids" on campus and step up into new responsibilities. This is the first grade level that in which they will experience departmentalized learning. In my classroom, students will be learning Math and Science. Both of these subjects require collaborative working environments.

My Project

Developmentally my students need to talk through their learning. They need to communicate and share their thoughts. With these new flexible seating options, my students will be able to choose where they sit in the classroom and successfully communicate their learning with their peers.

This will be the first time that my students will be switching classrooms and it is vital that they feel comfortable in the classroom.

Having a safe space where students feel a positive energy is important to me. These flexible seating arrangements will also allow me to group the students and differentiate learning for student success.
