My Students

I teach students from a rural, high-poverty community. Resources are hard to get because of lowered school budgets and funding. This is does not help support students. Students learn best when they are engaged and comfortable. It is important for students to have opportunities for movement in order to continue to build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

I hope to use flexible seating to foster a love of learning in my students.

Research has proven that some students are able to learn more when given opportunities to move and not have to sit completely still at all times. Please think about helping us!

My Project

My students are so excited about the possibility of receiving flexible seating for our classroom. I teach 4th grade ELA and already allow my students the flexibility of sitting/laying on the classroom rug while reading or completing assignments. We also use the rug for small and whole group activities. They are older students and could benefit from some flexible seating as an alternative to the hard chairs we have now (which are 20 years old and beginning to fall apart).

Readers are leaders and having the ability to move while learning helps many students remain focused and on task.

This is very important in 4th grade ELA.
