Mrs. Hurlbert from Carson City NV is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Flex Space Comfy Pillows and Floor seats that will give them the options to read and work in a space that is away from their normal seats.
I have completed my first year of teaching in the 5th grade, and it was a spectacular year! We learned so much from each other, and at the end of the year, we were not ready to say so long. Now that I am moving on to my second year, I feel amazing about what the year holds.
When my students enter my classroom, I want them to feel welcomed and supported in their learning environment.
I will encourage them to explore and stretch their thinking beyond what they believe they can do. I will push them to be their best and will support them so they can continue being the positive light in our community.
I am excited to meet my fresh 5th graders, many of whom I met previously, and they are a fantastic group of students. They appreciate their teachers and their hard work and I will work diligently to continue the positive educational path they are on to ready them for their new journey into middle school.
The current flexible seating is a big hit in the classroom. The students have a seat and a desk for direct instruction, but when it comes to independent work, I like to give them the option to choose where they would like to work. This gives them the opportunity to even have partner discussions in a quieter area.
The power of choice gives the students a sense of ownership of the classroom and their learning.
This choice includes being responsible enough to work efficiently while working in a comfortable learning environment. The students really understand that flexible seating is a privilege and love to utilize it throughout the day.
