Mrs. Flores from Fowler CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning in Comfort

Help me give my students better felxible seating options! The huge carpet will allow us to sit together comfortably for instruction at the board. Smaller rugs will allow more cushioned floor seating around the room.

My Students

My students are an amazing group of hard-working, silly, and dedicated kiddos. These devoted students work tirelessly from the very first bell in the morning until the final bell in the afternoon. Although they come from a variety of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, they have created a family in our room where each one is accepted and valued. My kids take the time out to recognize the good in each other as well and assist each other when needs arise. We value diversity, each other's thoughts, and creativity.

These fourth graders are also happier and more productive working in our flexible seating classroom than in a traditional one.

Each student has individual needs and preferences when it comes to seating, so we strive to make our room the most comfortable learning environment for them all. Some students like to wiggle while they work, so they choose seats that move. Others like to flop in a bean bag with a clipboard or lay on the floor to complete their assignments. Whatever their choice, they know they can find it!

My Project

Our class meets on in front of the Promethean board for whole class lessons. Students sit on the floor with their clipboards ready to learn. This plush carpet will allow all students to comfortably sit on the floor while learning. It is big enough to accommodate the entire class!

The small foldable floor seats and little carpets will give students more comfortable floor seating options when working independently.

We strive to make our classroom comfortable for all learners, and this is another way to make that happen.

Many students choose to sit in saucer or club chairs, and they have asked for lap desks to help them be able to write more comfortably. These lap desks will allow them room for their writing and reading materials on top, as well as providing small storage spaces for their pencils and crayons.
