I teach 2nd grade at a title 1 school. I am always looking for new and exciting things to use in the classroom to help motivate students. These students give 100% every day and we want to have the right materials for them to use. We do a lot of instruction on the carpet in small and whole groups. This gives students the opportunity to get up and move around so they can stay focused and on task. They work very well with partners and are so creative! It is truly an honor to work with these students each and every day.
Having flex seating as an option this year would be amazing. I borrowed a wobble chair from a teacher last year for a student with ADD and it helped tremendously. I would love to have a set of my own for future students. The bounce seats would also work wonderful in reading/math groups and also just make kids excited. We use whiteboards daily (which was funded by a previous donors choose project) but we quickly run out of markers for them. Having markers available for the students is a must but can be expensive for teachers to buy on their own. I have also used the book bags in the past for AR books but they are worn out. A new set of these would be a great place for their AR books and they would be able to safely take them home without misplacing them. My bins in my library area are also very damaged from years of use and a new set of these would be a great way to organize the library area without having to worry about broken bins.
