Mrs. Barbera from Honolulu HI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students new seat storage to help keep them organized.
My students are living in the heart of Waikiki, the center of tourism on Oahu, Hawaii. As a Title I school, with 65% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, the need for resources is very high due to school funding. My class is made up of 11 English Language Learners. Most of my students come from Micronesia or Pacific islands. This is usually their first experience in a school setting. Their language might be limited but they have a desire to learn. There are two special education students who are a big part of our class Ohana (family). They bring perseverance to our class.
Students have a strong sense of curiosity about the world, yet their curiosity is limited due to limited supplies.
Most of my students come to school with the desire to learn and achieve their goals. They want to explore the world around them and learn about culture and diversity. Hawaii is a melting pot of culture and traditions. From the moment they come to class, they are excited to learn.
In my classroom students do not have person space and are often bumping elbows. The donation of this project will help students keep organized and open some space on students' tables. It will also teach them the importance of keeping their work space clean. It also allows students to have their materials available on their chairs and increase productivity. Two years ago, we got funded for a similar project but as the years have gone, the seat covers have fallen apart or stained.
Classroom environment and space is important for a child because it can affect their productivity and overall mood.
So I am asking for replace ones because they have completely made the students more organized and cut down distractions. Having an organized work space give a sense of structure and order. It allows students to stay focus and decreases distractions. Having these seat organizers will help also make sure all students have their proper materials at all time.
