Mrs. Larson from Saint Johns FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Explorers. Collaborators. Digital Natives. These are just some of the words that describe my students. I am fortunate enough to work with a classroom full of amazing kids in a large neighborhood school in northern Florida. Their curiosity about the world around them is refreshing. They enjoy laughing, reading, moving around, and sharing their knowledge with others. I want to help them quench this thirst for knowledge.

My 3rd-grade classroom is a place of collaboration, discovery, and growth.

I help guide my students through a transitional year in school - where they go from the "babies" of primary grades to the "big kids" in elementary school. I take pride in knowing that I have a hand in shaping these curious, creative, and hardworking learners.

My Project

The modern classroom isn't filled with wooden desks, a chalkboard, and a lectern at the front. Instead, the 21st-century classroom is a place where students can collaborate, sitting in a circle while using lap desks and researching about whales. Lounge in a cozy beanbag chair while finishing the latest in their favorite reading series. Ponder the next step in a math problem while balancing on a stability ball.

Research says that educators must adapt to their students' needs.

In this case, my students' needs are learning spaces that are as flexible and adaptable as the students themselves.

The materials I've requested will help to enhance the learning environment in my classroom. Being able to choose the seat that fits their learning style and mood will help my 21st-century learners have fun while learning.
