Mrs. Ravenscroft from Melbourne FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

This Isn't Your Grandma's Classroom!

My students need seating options like stools, light filters and lap desks to fit their individual learning needs.

My Students

My students are creative, hard working and energetic. They are also unique individuals that require a learning style that fit their needs. The way students learn and interact with their classroom has changed.

I want to give my students the choice to learn and be comfortable as they see fit.

I want to build a classroom that has more effective learning going on with a higher ability to concentrate. I want to create a space where students can make choices to be better able to focus and their energy is used in a positive way.

My Project

When giving students choices on seating in the classroom, it gives them the power to focus on their learning. When I give my students individual work time, they are either sitting at their desks, standing at a table or sitting on the floor with a clip board. I want to give them better options that would make them feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Giving my students the choice of where they want to sit, gives them the power to make choices based on what they need.

When they know they can do that, there is less disruption in the class. The lap desks will let some students sit comfortably on the floor and be able to work on a computer or with paper and pencil. The stools will give other students the ability to sit at higher tables and allow for more movement. The light filters will allow the students a room to feel warm and inviting.

I have seen the benefits of giving students choices of where they sit to make positive learning decisions throughout the day. I am hoping these additions to the classroom will give a positive impact to fit my students' needs in learning and growing.
