Ms. McClure from Neptune Beach FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

NO MORE Assigned SEATS!

My students need this horseshoe activity table so I may facilitate in the middle and place more than 5 students around at a time for a small group lesson. The stools are space savers, as well!

My Students

I teach 3rd grade math and science to a group of children with varying exceptionalities. My group is a lovely mixture of girls and boys from different cultures, backgrounds and ethnicity. I have students who are identified (ESE) or learning disabled, gifted and talented, deaf and hard of hearing, Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD. Every year, the group looks very similar. Half of our school population is from low income families and on free lunch. I am a singer/actress and incorporate much of my talents into making my classroom fun! I make up silly songs to help them remember math terms and embarrass myself willingly. I love my students and gain great pleasure in helping them grow into independent learners and humans.

My Project

I am requesting a large group table to use when we have our small groups for math. I put a huge focus on small group instruction, we spend a lot of time working in small groups to meet the student's individual needs and provide interventions.

NO MORE ASSIGNED SEATS!

Having a table shaped this way will allow me to work with more students than the circular table I currently use, and the stools will provide students with a more casual seat and provide more elbow room to meet during small groups or when they need to collaborate.

I included balls and lap desks, as well. The students love to work on the floor. Third graders have a ton of energy and appreciate choices. I am working towards creating a completely student centered classroom.
