Ms. Watkins from Cedar Hill TX is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting Comfy and Cozy in Ms.P's Math Academy!!!

My students need flexible seating to help them engage in the lesson and take charge of their learning space. Also, I would like to take my students out of the traditional seating style.

My Students

If I could describe my classroom in five words, they would be: authentic, rigorous, supportive, engaging, and community.

Each child in my classroom learns absolutely different from their peers.

Each student brings unique personalities, creativity, humor, strengths and weakness in each subject.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

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.

I believe adding beanbags and a futon will give the students a diffent classroom setting than what they’re used to.

This will also give students more options to choose from beside the floor or tables.
