Mrs. Holzmann from Green Bay WI is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keep Calm and Learn

My students need seating options such as balance balls and yoga cushions as well as filtered light to improve focus.

My Students

My fourth graders love school and crave new learning. They build towers of books to make reading goals, they challenge each other in math partnerships, they think deeply about science and history while working in small groups. I love their enthusiasm and new insights.

My students are special because they are kind and take fairness very seriously.

On reward day individuals always choose whole class recess or candy for the class rather than an individual award. Spreading kindness comes naturally!

My Project

I have chosen light filters and some softer seating options to create a serene classroom atmosphere. I will use the light filters to create a cozy space to aid with calming and focus for all the children in my classroom. Softer seating options in the cushions and balance balls will allow my wigglers an alternative to my standard hard back classroom chairs.

My goal as a teacher is to create a sense of calm and focus to help my children achieve their academic goals.

I believe that adding some softer lighting and seating will add serenity to our classroom. Learning cannot occur until a child feels safe. With calmness comes safety.
