Mrs. Cosgrove from Barre VT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students flexible seating options, such as bean bags, stools, and active learning seats as they learn to focus and work hard.
My 7/8 grade students inspire me to be a better teacher and learn despite the obstacles they face in life. They come from a variety of circumstances and enter our math classroom ready to be challenged and expecting to succeed. Our classroom is a family and a safe haven for learning and building trusting, caring relationships. We make mistakes together, fail together, and persevere together.
My students are compassionate leaders.
They take advantage of opportunities to engage in our prek - 8 community through mentoring and other activities. I am so proud of them and know they are going to make a difference in the world.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.
The wobble stools will allow for movement for those students that need to do so to focus. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The beanbag chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are easy to clean and lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
