Ms. Fernandez from Oakland CA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students stools to sit on at the computer and at the teacher's small group table. They stand because they're aren't tall enough and moving chairs isn't feasible.
My students are charismatic, dedicated, and avid readers, as long as they have the right book. They live in a low socioeconomic area, and our school is a Title I school, which means that the majority of our students (in our case, more than 95%) receive free lunch because of their family's income. Our school is also a Spanish dual immersion school.
Most of my students are native Spanish speakers and work diligently to develop both their Spanish and English language and literacy skills.
During the school day, my students have silent reading time during which they may take quizzes on the books they've read at the computers. At the same time, I pull small groups of students to my table in the back of the room to help them on things with which they're struggling.
With these stools, my students will be able to sit when they come to my small group table to receive the assistance they need to progress!
They will also be able to sit when they work on computers. As of now, they often stand to do both unless, of course, they're lucky enough to get one of the few stools we have. Our classroom is very small and moving chairs around takes more time and creates more of a disturbance than is worth it for the time they spend working with me or going to the computer to take their reading quizzes. I have purchased a lot of stools out of pocket, but they were not of the best quality and almost all of them have broken. We are in need of some quality stools.
Your donations will help make my classroom a more comfortable place to learn.
They will provide for smoother transitions, maximized learning time, and will allow my students the opportunity to sit and focus while they learn.
