Mrs. Ramsey from Wichita KS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read, Rest, Refocus!

My students need an area where they can get away from others and relax and try to refocus so they can get back to learning.

My Students

I teach a 2nd/3rd grade mixed abilities self-contained classroom. My students are so sweet and caring. I just finished my first year as a mixed abilities teacher and have learned so much. Any time I felt discouraged, I reminded myself that my students feel discouraged a lot of times and if they don't give up, then I won't give up either!

My students struggle every day just to be able to learn.

I try to provide an environment where they feel safe and loved. I tell them every day they can do and be anything they want to do. It just takes hard work and not giving up.

My Project

I want to create an area where students can sit on a bean bag or lay down on a soft, cozy rug whenever they are needing some down time.

There are times we all need an area by yourself so that we can refocus.

I will have a large bookcase with lots of books students will be able to look at while they are having their down time. I will also include some stuff animals students will be able to cuddle with as well.

I want my classroom to make students feel like they are home. Where students know they are loved and cared for.
