Let's Get Our Wiggles Out!

Help me give my students fun seating options in the classroom so they can take ownership over their learning environment! They are so excited to have the possibility of getting fun tables and a futon in the classroom!

My Students

The students that will benefit from this project are special in so many ways. They enjoy learning and have a love for enriching their education. Students in this classroom range from an assortment of academic areas and socioeconomic backgrounds. Students at the school have incredible character and love to spend time with their peers. They are compassionate and helpful toward one another and help each other grow both academically and socially. The atmosphere of our school building is one that lends itself to building depth of character and authentic and life applicable learning.

My Project

These items will give the students a whole new excitement for learning. They are asking for new seating options and I would love to deliver this for them. Who doesn't love a welcoming environment to work in? They really want a futon as a seating option as well as some various seating choices that differ from the traditional desk/chair. These kiddos are awesome and I can't wait to see the impact this has on their learning. This group of students are some of the most respectful children I have ever taught and to gift them with these items would bring both myself and them such joy.
