Ms. Weaver from Metairie LA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in Paradise

My students need a table and chairs to change the environment of the classroom to help them learn, and gives them the opportunity to collaborate which influences learning.

My Students

I teach at a magnet school for gifted and high-achieving students. We serve students in grades 6 - 12 from throughout our district. Students test for admission and most students are functioning above the 90th percentile. All students are working at least one grade level above their actual age. The students in my school are a true melting pot of nationalities, religions, and economic levels but the common trait that they have is the love of being challenged and learning new things. My students challenge each other, and me, to learn more and do their very best, both in and out of the classroom.

My Project

I usually begin my lesson with group learning, answer questions and let them explore. The table and chairs I have chosen can accommodate up to 3 students and myself or 4 students. Using the table and chairs will help keep students working with collaborative groups more engaged and have a better focus on the skill, as well as increased class participation.

The use of chairs and table will promote more interaction and collaboration among students which will significantly influence learning.

Students can rotate from their desk to a larger table for further discussion among classmates. The table and chairs will also help the teacher with smaller group instruction to clear up lesson misconceptions.
