Help me give my students the opportunity to enjoy flexible seating within their learning environment.
The students are eager and willing to learn despite the many challenges that they face in and out of the classroom. They live and go to school in a low-income neighborhood and lack the materials and supplies needed to be successful in school. Many of the students do not have books of their own to read at home or the basic supplies to complete their homework.
90% of my class is reading below a second grade level.
We are an Investment School in Cleveland, Ohio. Investment schools are the lowest 10-15 percent of schools in the district that call for immediate and dramatic action. This network of Investment Schools represents not only our clearest need, but also our greatest opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students. The majority of the entire school is performing at least 1-2 grade levels below grade level. Despite their challenges, they are eager and ready to learn!
My students need flexible seating (beanbag seats) to create a more productive working environment.
Imagine being forced to sit in a stationary desk for 7 hours a day with few opportunities to move, all the while being expected to fully engage in rigorous academics.
That’s the reality for so many elementary school students, including mine. Research shows that this isn’t the most efficient way for students to spend their day. The good news is that there is an alternative to this ineffective routine: Flexible Seating.
Our classrooms haven’t changed since 1918, but our students have.
We need to adjust to best fit their needs. That means providing an environment that encourages flexibility, movement and creativity. Flexible seating is a good place to start!
Your contribution will help transform my classroom into a fun, safe, innovative work space!
