Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

I would like to expand and improve the study areas in my classroom. Currently, I have provided alternate seating options through sets of stacking stools, wobble stools, metal can stools, clipboards, lapdesks, and carpet squares. Through natural wear and tear as well as a limit to my own personal funds, items need replacing or supplementing.

Goal

I would like to expand and improve the study areas in my classroom. Currently, I have provided alternate seating options through sets of stacking stools, wobble stools, metal can stools, clipboards, lapdesks, and carpet squares. Through natural wear and tear as well as a limit to my own personal funds, items need replacing or supplementing.  

 

What will be done with my students

The alternate seating options I have created give students an opportunity to work in collaborative groups in a more natural manner. Children who are more likely to sprawl across the floor, cluster randomly, and self select study areas are more engaged in their learning. Students are able to move about the room, choosing different seating options based on the task. More small grouping opportunities occur and students become more independent in their learning. Our class deviates away from a traditional-desk-in-rows "stay seated" institutional environment and instead mimics the comfort and safety of a nurturing environment.  

 

Benefits to my students

More small grouping opportunities occur and students become more independent in their learning. The classroom is seen as a safe haven for taking risks and and exploring deeper knowledge. Students gather together to work on cooperative projects. Other students find quiet corners to work without distractions from peers.This generation faces the high stress of many assessments, higher academic expectations than ever before, and stresses from home. The environment is key to successful learning. 

 

Budget Narrative

This will supplement and replace current seating that is damaged or inadequate, in order to enhance the learning environment. Pricing is using Amazon Prime.
