Mrs. Jacobson Sande from Charles City IA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rockin' In Our Seats

My students need a collaborative floor work space bundle to meet their movement and learning needs. Flexible seating gives students a choice of where they want to sit and varied seating meets many different student needs.

My Students

My students are an inquisitive group of fourth graders who are always ready to step up to the challenge, no matter what it may be. They are creators, writers, builders, thinkers, and readers ready to take on the challenges of being an active learner.

They are an active group that is in need of flexible seating for small group discussion and alternative work areas different from their traditional desk.

This group comes from a small town setting with big city dreams. Many of our students (67%) receive free or reduced rate lunch, but that statistic does not hold them back. They are eager to learn and build on their current knowledge. At times, they just need structured sitting spots to focus their attention and learning.

My Project

This learning space will provide a small group area for students to work and collaborate ideas. This space will also give me the flexibility of organizing small groups throughout my learning day.

This lowered table and chairs will make a difference by allowing my movers and shakers the ability to move around when they are working.

Students will be able to quietly move while they are having discussions or working independently on projects. Many of my students need to move while learning and this will allow them to do it in a quiet nondistracting way.

By having another learning space, my students will have the flexibility to go to a learning space that better fits their needs. In this case, the need to be able to move around while working and learning.
