Mrs. Griffin from Sebring FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating

Help me give my students a new place to sit to work. A new carpet would be the perfect place to collaborate on classwork. Also a magnetic easel would be great to have instructions posted for projects.

My Students

My students are special because of their eagerness to learn. My school is considered a high poverty school. We are a Title I school. We also receive free breakfast and lunch. I currently teach two groups of math and science. The students are very diligent with assignments and always want to do more to enhance the activity.

My students participate in collaborative groups.

This set-up lends itself to collaboration and project-based learning, an approach to teaching in which students solve real-world problems using skills they will need for the future. These skills include things such as critical thinking, problem solving and communication.

My Project

Students love to have the choice of sitting at their desk or on a carpet. They will love the opportunity to sit on the carpet. A magnetic easel can provide a new way to display important information.

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.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
