TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need 3 contemporary stand up collaboration desks for their classroom.
I teach in an awesome school system with so much potential. We have a mixture of students that live in the inner-city and open-enrollment students from the suburbs. Students come ready to learn; however, they are not always provided with the resources to work to their full potential, both at their homes and at our school due to lack of funding.
In my classroom, I have a mixture of gifted and regular education students.
Also in there, are students with on 504 plans because of behavior and/or for physical problems. This creates a very wide range of needs that can be difficult to meet at times. To help meet these needs, I like to provide my students with many choices, projects as well as movement throughout the day.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During work times, they can choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, on yoga balls or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The stand up desks are adjustable and will allow students to stand at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
