Mrs. Sears from Douglas GA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Multicultural Classroom With Flexible Learning Areas

My students need flexible seating stools to help with comfort, attention, & wiggly bodies. They need a welcoming, comfortable, cultural rug for whole group reading, & interactive activeboard computer lessons. Differentiation & choice are key.

My Students

My students are ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) students in grades K to 5th. Our goal is to reach all 4 language domain areas including: reading, writing, listening, & speaking, while tying the content to the Georgia Ed. standards. My students are from a rural community of Georgia coming from families of migrant, farm workers, & industrial factory workers. We are a 100% free lunch school and a 90% at-risk population. Our school is a Title I School & our ESOL program is a Title IV program. Our students are precious Hispanic & Indian children who come from bilingual families that speak mostly Spanish & Hindi at home. We have a translator for our school system as well. Their families are very involved in our school; however, many do not have anyone to help them with English at home.

We have Kindergarten through 5th grade & serve their International families as well.

Many are learning English as newcomers, & many are learning academic content in English; but have other languages spoken at home.

My Project

My goal is for my students to walk in & feel comfortable learning & sharing no matter where they are in the classroom. Students can have the choice to sit or lay on the rug to learn or sit in fun, wobbly stools for group learning.I like to lay on the floor to read & work on my computer, so I want my students to have that choice too. The multi-cultural rug will be a reflection of our many cultures & families in our school community. Comfortable students who are proud of their ethnicity feel free to learn, talk, & share!!
