Ms. Trussell from Milton FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students more flexible seating, like floor lap desks, so that each student has equitable options!
The students at our school have worked hard to excel and aim for excellence. We have brought our school grade up in the past few years. Each year the community supports where they can but, unfortunately, finances are tight in our area.
Compared to the rest of the county, our school has twice the average percentage of students with special needs, twice the average percentage of students who are homeless, and has the highest poverty rate in the county as 88% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
In our classroom, almost everyone has access to a bounce band, seat sack, laptop, and lap desk at all times.
As our class size grows, we need more tools that allow all of our desks to be flexible seating all year long for every student!
We currently have bounce bands for ALMOST every student, but in order for the students to be able to keep them on their desks during standardized testing in the spring, each desk must have a band on it.
Additionally, it is my goal to allow students to have options of varied height seating. The back row is allowed to stand at any point in time during the lesson. The middle row will (hopefully soon) all have hokki stools or chairs, and the front row will be lowered desks, or floor lap desks. The best part about these options is that the students will each be able to pick what works best to help them reach success.
