Mrs. Frick from Buffalo NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Sit and get Techy!

Help me give my students a more flexible way to learn with technology. These sitting desks will allow my class to sit in all areas of the classroom to learn and the headphones will help independence.

My Students

My students are all from the city of Buffalo. They come from low income families. They come to school and give me 100%. I strive to create the best learning environment I can as a teacher. My class is filled with elaborate thinkers. They truly enjoy coming to school and being given opportunities to work with their peers in a educational environment. Whatever I can do for my students I will try and do. They are why I chose this career! They are why I come to work!!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of spots in our room such as: at different tables, sitting in corners with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.
