My students are incredibly smart and excited to learn daily. In order for me to keep up with their forever growing curiosity and passion for learning, I need the materials to spark their learning.
"There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book." -Marcel Proust
The students that attend this Title I school come from a low socioeconomic status. Many students at our school are on free or reduced price lunch, and the school provides school supplies and the uniform for school. These circumstances often do not allow students access to academic supplies outside the campus of our school. Although these situations are unfair, my students deserve the same materials and access that any other child has. Providing these materials will help to push my students to a successful life.
My students currently are in a classroom sitting in groups at a desk. Throughout the day, students often are standing, or asking to even leave the room.
The standing desk would provide my students the opportunity to move without leaving the classroom or distracting others.
If a student is restless in the class for any reason they could easily go to the standing desk and complete an assignment, or activity that they are working with. The swinging bar would be a stress relief to someone who often needs something to fidget with in order to stay focused. The standing desk offers the flexible seating needed in our classroom full of students eager to learn.
