Flexible seating options in our classroom will provide movement and motivation and vestibular stimulation necessary to prepare my students to learn in the classroom. These materials will not directly teach my students new skills, but they will help prime my students for learning in all content areas and with many daily living skills. For example, while I'm teaching a lesson whole group or even individually, one of my students may be rolling around on the floor having difficulty maintaining their space and attention and controlling their own bodies. If flexible seating like a sensory swing or wobble chair is provided as an alternative to a regular classroom chair, the student may be able to maintain focus on the lesson being taught. The pressure of an alternative seating option and the ability to move freely around the classroom will activate their vestibular system and ready that student for learning. Finally, the student will be able to maintain focus and attention to the group or independent work area and be able to sit and focus to learn or demonstrate a specific skill. The donations for this project will improve my classroom by reducing the amount of behavioral issues and increase the amount of student attention to learn, because I will be able to provide the appropriate stimulation that my students need, but cannot voice, due to their disabilities. With less behavioral issues and increased ability to focus, we can increase our learning and time on task. I'm looking forward to seeing my students happier and ready to learn.
