Flexible Seating For Flexible Minds

My students are nice, and hard working students.  They also enjoy reading and are curious learners. After the limitations they’ve endured due to COVID, I would like to provide them with the comfort they deserve to make reading and learning enjoyable for them.

Help me give my students a more flexible working environment.

I have students with a variety of abilities and needs. So flex options such as colorful stools, floor cushions and wiggle seats will allow them to sit comfortably anywhere in the room. The variety of seating options will also help students who like to move a bit more as they learn and work.

Rocking & Writing!

Help me give my students flexible seating to help them get their wiggles out while still staying on task, and a dry erase board table to help them work in small groups or one-on-one with the teacher.

My students are learning the ins and outs of reading and writing this year. Seats that help students move while still focusing on their work is vital. Time spent reading helps them to become better readers.

The white board table gives my students space to work on reading, and writing skills.

Students will be able to practice many skills such as writing words with vowel teams, writing tricky words, making word chains, and writing sentences. Students will be able to do this in small groups, or one-on-one, with teacher supervision.

Teachers Pay Teachers That Help Teach | DonorsChoose project by Mrs. Fox

Help me give my students materials from Teachers Pay Teachers that will supplement our curriculum.

My students are curious explorers who love to learn. At times, the curriculum does not include extensions activities to make the curriculum more interesting, provide extra practice, and/or make the topic a bit more fun.

Teachers Pay Teachers have extension activities that cover many of the topics found in our curriculum.

Some of these include packets for our new CKLA curriculum, math activities, science activities, and even extensions that work with our Google classroom. Unfortunately, many of these activities come with a price tag. The price tag for these extensions range from free to many dollars, depending on the item(s) wanted. Due to the cost of some of the activities, we are asking for a bit of help.

An Area to Learn On!

Help me give my students an area where we can sit and work together.

My students are eager to learn new things! They are more focused when we are sitting together. It is also a place where the students can work in partners. I do the majority of teaching with my students right in front of me. I do not want then to have to sit on a cold dirty floor. When they are comfortable, they work better. Each student would have a special spot on the rug to sit for each lesson. There would not be any arguing over which spot is theirs.

Flex-Space Reading

Help me give my students a comfortable book seating space for independent reading.

Help me give my students plenty of comfortable seating space to encourage independent reading with books within reach. My students love to read around the room. This gives them a more relaxed feel as they explore new books. Adding flex-space will give my students a new space. It will also encourage students to share and take turns. My 23 second graders are very active and they love to read. Flexible seating would give them a chance to relax and read away from their regular seats. Something a little different! to motivate them.

Rockin’ Robots

Help me give my students the exposure to robotics while bringing to life the world of Computer Science.

One way I can give them these tools is to help expose them various learning situations that require them to think and solve through a problem – especially by exposing them to the world of Computer Science. Computer Science is the next big push and focus within education, especially in the state of Connecticut.

These robots will help bring Computer Science to life for my students and show them how it integrates into EVERY aspect of their everyday life both in and out of school. I KNOW they will be SO excited to see what THEY have programmed into the robot to come to life.

EXPOditing our Reading Skills

Help me give my students a platform to express their reading skills in different ways!

Our reading team services about 150 students yearly in a K-5 Title I Elementary School. Our students have a diverse set of needs and require various differentiated instruction. In our curriculum, we focus our instruction on building the foundational skills of segmenting, blending and encoding words. This supports the science of reading. A dry erase table for each reading classroom, would allow us to quickly assess student’s understanding of what is being taught. It will also encourage them to participate in real time. We can also offer directed support and feedback to each student.

Second Grade Seats for Scholars

Help me give my students bean bags and floor pillows so we can spread out and focus.

Our students are special! Our school is neighborhood school where most students live within walking distance to school. They are culturally and academically diverse. For most of the families English is their second language spoken at home.

My 21 second graders are ready to read, write and do arithmetic!

However, they get wiggly and need to be motivated. These bean bags and floor pillows will help them be comfortable while they focus on their work. Not only will these materials will make our classroom cozy and inviting, they will make us more productive!
