Mrs. Cavanaugh from Waterford CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need the bouncy desk bands, kneeling pads, peanut seats, donut balls, wobble cushions, balance balls, and lap desks.
We are a small, country school located in Waterford, CA. We have about 175 students K-8 in our school. This upcoming year, 2018-2019, I will have about 20 students in my first grade class. These students are active, lively, and so eager about learning. They love to be learning and moving!
School is unique for many reasons, but mainly for its small size. I get the opportunity to form relationships with each of my students. I love my job & I love being their teacher!
Flexible seating will allow my students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. Each day, students will get the opportunity to choose a seat they feel they can do their best in. My current plan for flexible seating is: lowered table with kneeling pads and wobble cushions, raised desks with bouncy bands, desks with balance balls, peanut seats, and lap desks at the carpet.
I have discovered that my students are focused and eager to learn when comfortable.
By using flexible seating, the students will be able to make smart choices in where they sit. If they do not work well in one area, they will learn to problem solve and select another.
The products that I have selected for this project will help to get my students engaged in their learning. I have seen flexible seating positively affect students learning and I am so excited to see what it will do with my upcoming class.
