Learning in Comfort
My students need portable reclining seats, Balance Balls, plastic stack stools, Classroom Book Organizers, and Peel & Stick dry-erase dots.
Our school just implemented full-day kindergarten this year and we are still in need of many things to make this a success!
I teach at a Title I school in California where 90% of our students receive free or reduced lunch.
Most of our children tackle many obstacles, both in and outside of the classroom. Regardless of their obstacles, our students enter the class daily with a delightful smile on their face and a desire to learn. These students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
I am requesting furniture to support the start of a flexible seating classroom including portable reclining seats, Balance Balls, and plastic stack stools. The rocking seats are for children to use during reading time and the stools will be used for small group reading. I also want to provide the Balance Balls to students with extra energy to release. The Classroom Book Organizers and Peel & Stick dry-erase dots are for organizing classroom and reading materials.
I want to prepare students for the real world, so I want to create an environment that reflects life outside of the traditional classroom.
I want to give children choices and have them be responsible for their learning.
My project will make a difference because student-centered learning has shown to be successful. My students will be able to learn through movement and burn excess energy and increase motivation and engagement.
