Mrs. Humphrey from Lake Oswego OR is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

If You Want Flexible Seating, Please Stand Up!

My students need these stand up desks to have flexibility throughout their daily learning. Some students feel like they can work at their best by standing; I want to give them this opportunity.

My Students

My students are creative, active, and full of energy. They love to work together and collaborate with each other. We have been doing many group projects, partner activities, and STEM activities this year. They are always up and moving around and we have a very strangely shaped trapezoid classroom for them to maneuver in!

I know how excited my students get about new things and a change in their environment.

I move desks each month to get these kiddos around new peers in class, have a new location in the classroom to see the room and their teacher from a different perspective, and get to work with multiple students throughout the year. Having a space to be collaborative, move freely, have the freedom to focus on the project at hand and not how and where they are sitting, will be a great thing.

My students work hard and produce work they are excited about and proud of. Anything I can do to continue and encourage this behavior is worth it!

My Project

With adding these two desks to my classrooms, it will help add another aspect of flexible seating and grouping for my students.

Having the ability to work at a standing desk, just might match the needs of some of my students perfectly.

I am working on building a flexible classroom where students can work at their best and give effort on their work from different comfort levels that suit them. One of these is by standing to do their thinking. I am trying to reach all learners, and adding a stand up desk or two in my class, gives me that flexibility.
