Hot Seats For Learning!

My students need carpet tiles, a large round rug, some padded cushions, and some clipboards for them to be able to work independently and in ways that are comfortable for them.

My Students

I teach in a low income area. We do not receive classroom fees and it is very difficult to get the things we need for our classroom. Although I teach in a low income area, I feel the students still deserve to have all we can provide for them.

I want my students to have a comfortable, relaxing classroom where they feel happy and are eager to learn.

I buy a lot of things myself, but it is difficult to purchase everything we need.

As research states, we all learn in different ways. This being said, it is hard for some students to do their best sitting up straight, feet on the floor, in a desk. I would like to be able to offer some alternative seating so my students can learn in a way that is most comfortable for them.

My Project

Students learn in different ways. We try to provide a variety of ways for our students to learn, reaching all styles of learners. By doing so, our students are able to reach their full potential.

Students need to be able to work in the most optimal learning environment.

Just like students learn differently, they also work differently. By providing some flexible seating options, students will be able to work in an area that is comfortable for them. Flexible seating options also allow students to move around the room and find an area to work independently. Traditional seating is the answer for some students, but not for others. I believe this option will give the students some options and independence.

I am requesting some carpet tiles, a large round rug, some padded cushions, and some clipboards. The carpet tiles and cushions will give students the freedom to work in private, independent places in the classroom, without having to sit on the cold floor. The large carpet will be used to put under a short round table. Students will be able to kneel or sit directly on the carpet and not have to use a chair. The clipboards will be used when students are working around the room, in place of a table or a desk. These options will allow students to work in areas and ways they are more comfortable in.
