Ms. Bohman from Chicago IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 6 floor cushions so they can spread around the room and be comfortable when collaborating and working productively.
As a teacher in a low-income school, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school each day eager to learn, and there is a sense of joy in the classroom. I have 16 boys and 4 girls in my 4th grade class. My students are confident and active learners, and they thrive when they have ownership over their learning.
Recently my students have been asking for more ownership over where they sit in the classroom.
My students wish to have a place to sit away from their desk, in which they can be comfortable, but remain focused so they can productively complete their work and reach their goals.
My students need flexible spaces to spread out, learn, and collaborate. Students rotate to 3-4 learning stations each day in both reading and math to complete a personalized learning plan. In order to make learning personalized, seating needs to be personalized as well.
The floor cushions will empower students to select a productive seat and take ownership over their learning, whether they are working collaboratively or independently.
How can I expect my students to solve problems and make choices independently if I constantly make choices for them? My classroom environment should encourage collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. This simply cannot be done when kids are forced to sit at their desks all day. Kids need flexible seating in the classroom.
