Mr. Bolt from Orlando FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Selective Seating

My students need these durable steel tables, chairs and rugs as these will create seating arrangements that will provide for enhanced student engagement and collaboration in small group work.

My Students

My students come from a background with many needs. Oftentimes my students are from single-parent households where their parent or guardian, for various reasons, are not personally involved in their child's academic progress. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. My at-risk students can break the cycle of poverty with an increased emphasis upon their academic studies.

My Project

Selective seating has been found to produce flexible classrooms where it gives students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them, and help them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking. The 36" round tables and chairs allow the students to better interact with one another as well as provide each student enough work space for their laptops and notebooks. Teachers who have employed flexible classrooms have found the following things take place in the class room:

*Their students seem happier and more engaged.

*Their students are participating more and having more invigorating conversations.
