Flexible Seating to Engage ALL Learners

My students need furniture and supplies to transform the classroom into a learning environment where the students choose a place they feel is equipt to their learning style.

My Students

I have such an amazing job teaching children during their first year of school. I teach in a low income neighborhood that may not have an abundance of financial resources but is rich with love and compassion. My students are some of the most caring and loving children you will ever meet and the driving force behind what I do. Some of these children come to school hungry and wearing the same clothes as the day before, but with a big smile and a huge hug for me each morning. Even on the worst days seeing their smiling faces warms my heart!

We are a kindergarten family that enjoys learning and that is always on the move.

I teach my students through play (learning with hands on activities) as much as we can. They are all so full of energy that sometimes I wish I could bottle up and sell! I love these children and want to give them any opportunity to be successful and reach their full potential. One of my major goals as their kindergarten teacher is to help them build a love for learning.

My Project

Your donation is going to allow students the ability to move around the room and choose different locations to work where they feel most comfortable and can be successful. As a country we have set very high expectations on our youngest learners. I believe that providing them an environment that allows them to move around and change locations helps stimulate their brain and allow them to focus for longer periods of time. Many students are just not able to sit in a chair all day. These items will allow them to chose to sit on the floor, kneel at a table, stand, lay back on a pillow, balance on a yoga ball, or even relax in a comfortable chair to work.

I am wanting to embrace the high energy and movement of my students and pour it into their learning.

As adults we are able to get up and move around and change location when we are loosing our ability to focus. I want to give my students the opportunity to become more independent of their learning by giving them the freedom and ability to choose their learning location. I believe that this will embrace the learning of all my students while also helping those students with learning disabilities succeed by giving them seating options to learn utilizing motor engaging learning styles.
