Mrs. Rutledge from Douglasville GA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Write!

My students need flexible seating in writing class, so they can move around, be comfortable, and stay focused while writing. Students have different learning styles while working.

My Students

Despite the fact my school is in a high poverty school district, my students are high achieving students who excel in all areas. We are consistently one of the top three performing schools in our district. We believe we excel because of our high expectations for our students.

My students come to school with various problems, so it is so important that they feel safe, comfortable, loved, and look forward to coming to school.

The fifth graders at my school love to express themselves through writing.

My Project

My students love to write, but rush to be the first to sit in my antique student desk. Students have different learning styles, so some work best relaxed on the floor, while some enjoy sitting or lounging in a cozy chair. They need to feel comfortable to spark their ideas and to keep focused on their writing.

Children love a "cool" place to write and feel important.

Flexible seating will help them do this! Seats that are comfortable to lounge in will help motivate them to become the authors they dream of.

My students also need writing supplies. Clipboards they can take notes on and take with them around the room, dry erase markers, erasers, pens, and pencils will definitely provide them with the supplies they need to become successful authors.
